HISTORY 

OF THE 

BRITISH LANDED GENTRY, 

EMBELLISHED with the ARMORIAL BEARINGS of EACH FAMILY. 

BY JOHN BURKE, ESQ. 

AUTHOR OF THE " PEERAGE AND BARONETAGE." 



PROSPECTUS. 



Tins original and important Work has been undertaken by Mr. Burke 
as a sequel to his well known and established " Dictionary of the 
Peerage and Baronetage of the United Kingdom," and upon a some- 
what similar plan ; in order that, when completed, the two Publications 
may embrace the whole body of the British Peerage, Baronetage, 
and Gentry, and may furnish such a mass of authentic and available 
information in regard to all the principal Families in the Kingdom, 
as has never before been brought together for general reference and utility. 

The novelty and the serviceable purposes of the present undertaking 
combine to invest it with no common claims to public attention. The 
highly influential and extensive class to whom it refers, have hitherto had 
no work of reference exhibiting an entire and authentic account of their 
respective families, although it is obvious how large a share of interest 
attaches to such an object, both for the parties themselves, and for all 
connected with them, by the ties either of alliance, friendship, neigh- 
bourhood, patronage, or political constituency. That so desirable a digest 
should not before have been executed, has been doubtless owing to 
the extreme labour and research demanded for the purpose ; but this 
obstacle has now been overcome by efforts and arrangements of long- 
continuance, aided by communications from the most authentic sources. 
The British Landed Gentry have now, therefore, a work to which they can 



refer with pride and satisfaction, as being, in the most peculiar sense, 
their own. The records of their honours and achievements — the copious 
details of their bright and long-derived lineage — the incidental particulars 
of their connexions and collateral alliances — and the curious anecdotes 
and traditions concerning their families, which have been at infinite 
pains and immense cost assembled in this Work, will, it is confidently 
presumed, render it highly acceptable to every member of that dis- 
tinguished class for whose use, benefit and credit, it has been published. 



Ten Parts of the Work have already appeared, price 7 s. 6d. each, 
comprising particulars of nearly 30,000 Eminent Families or Individuals 
connected with them. The first eight Parts, forming 2 volumes, may be 
had bound in morocco cloth, price £1. lis. 6d. each volume; and a Part 
will be regularly published every quarter, till completed. 

From the Opinions of the Public Press throughout the Kingdom, 
the following are selected : — 



" A great and national undertaking. Of 
the Peers and Baronets of Great Britain we 
have heard and read ; but of the Com- 
moners— of Families equally celebrated in 
History— we have till now remained in total 
ignorance."— Glouk. 

" A most valuable work, the want of which 
has been long and severely felt by ike 
country, and which we had almost despaired 
of seeing supplied. Mr. Burke has executed 
bis task to the complete satisfaction of the 
public. The genealogical details are com- 
plete, without being tedious; and, as the 
best sources of information have, in every 
instance, been resorted t<>, the accuracy of 
the work may be relied upon."— Observer. 

" A work of great utility and interest Its 
researches are highly curious, and the infor- 
mation it supplies touching the Gentry of the 
country, is not less worthy of regard than 
that to which we have hitherto been coutiued 



as to the Peerage and the Baronetage."— 
Morning Post. 

" A book of the deepest interest, and 
coutaiuiii!!, indeed, so vast a portion of 
family history as perhaps the annals of no 
other country could produce. It is almost 
impossible to convey a more striking illus- 
tration of the respectability and permanency 
of the great proprietors ofthe soil than is to 
be found in the'History of the Landed Gentry 
of Great Britain and Ireland.' Besides the 
descents, dignities, and armorial bearings ol 
every family, it contains the most memorable 
actions of persona who have distinguished 
themselves, intermixed with curious anec- 
dotes. It includes, also, a countless number 
of particulars relating to the inter-marriages 
of the various families. The work deserves, 
and it will no doubt command, as extensive 
a sale as the Peerage and Baronetage of the 
same indefatigable compiler."— Son.

The Proprietor of the Series here announced, having had the good for- 
tune to publish, during- the last twenty years, a very large proportion of 
the most masterly works of Fiction — such as have become incorporated 
with the Literature of the Country — is obviously placed in the most 
favourable position for an undertaking of this nature — and he has deter- 
mined that no composition of inferior and ephemeral character shall be 
admitted into the Collection ; but that those Works alone which have 
received the stamp of unequivocal public approbation, and which maybe 
read from time to time with still recurring pleasure and profit, shall con- 
stitute the Series. 

*** Each Novel will be completed, wherever possible, in a single volume, and any 

work may be obtained separately.

PREFAC E. 



IN completing the Second Volume of this Work, nothing remains for 
the Author beyond the repetition of his acknowledgments for the 
support he continues daily to receive from every part of the kingdom, 
— support the more acceptable and the more gracious, because coming, 
in many instances, without solicitation — in all, without reserve and 
without distrust. The aid of the ablest and most celebrated writers 
in his own peculiar walk of literature has been freely proffered him ; 
and collections, acquired by vast expense, and vaster labour, have 
been gratuitously opened to his investigation. Thus sustained, 
arduous though the task he has undertaken may appear to be, and 
arduous though it really is, he can have little apprehension now as 
to the result : the difficulties, which at first seemed almost insur- 
mountable, are entirely removed, and the road before him, although 
yet a rugged one, presents no impediment which perseverance and 
industry may not be found sufficient to overcome. 

In the first volume, the Author was anxious to name the eminent 
persons to whom he stood so deeply indebted, individually ; but the 
list was even then so e\tensive, that he was obliged to abandon the 
intention, and to content himself with a general acknowledgment of 
obligation. He is now placed in a similar situation ; nay, the cata- 



V1U PREFACE. 

logue has become so much enlarged as to preclude the possibility of 
enumeration. He must not, however, omit particularizing his highly 
gifted and accomplished friend James Roche, Esq. of Cork, to whom 
he is indebted for the most important literary assistance, and the most 
valuable information : nor should he forget especially naming that 
able genealogist, Mr. Joseph Morris, of Shrewsbury, who has fur- 
nished materials, admirably digested, for some of the most elaborate 
pedigrees in this volume. In returning thanks to his esteemed cor- 
respondent, Mr. Allan, of Durham, in the first volume, that gentleman 
is called William Henry Allan, Esq. instead of Robert Henry Allan, 
Esq. which inaccuracy the Author begs now to apologize for, and to 
correct.

year, and that to him was confided the dis- 
tinguished honour of bearing the banner of 
St. George at the memorable battle of 
Azincourt. In February, 1424, Thomas de 
Strykeland, late bearer of the banner of 
St. George, petitioned King Henry V. to

state in parts beyond the seas, from the time

Pol'll AM OF LlTTLECOTT. 

P. 199, col. 2, 1.51, for " Friday," read 

" Trickev." 
P. 201. The following is a more cor- 
rect version of the tradition regard- 
ing Littlecott, when possessed by the 
Dayrells. 
" About seven or eight miles from the 
mansion of an ancient and respectable 
family in Wiltshire, towards the close of the 
sixteenth century, there dwelt a midwife of 
great skill and practice, who one night was 
called up just as she had gone to rest, alter 
having returned from exercising the duties 
of her profession in another quarter. As 
soon as she knew the cause of her being 
disturbed, she endeavoured to excuse her- 
self, on account of fatigue, and wished to 
send an assistant whom she kept in the 
house. The messenger, however, being- 
resolved to gain the principal only for his 
purpose, urged that he had something to 
ask of her, for a person of consequence, 
after which the deputy might do. She ac- 
cordingly came down stairs and opened the 
-door, after which she disappeared, and was 
absent for many hours. 

" The deposition she made of what fol- 
lowed before a magistrate, and afterwards 
upon trial, was to the following effect. — She 
stated tliat as soon as she had unfastened 
the door, and partly opened it, a hand was 
thrust in, which struck down the candle, 
and at the same instant pulled her into the 
road in front of her house, which was de- 



tached from the village, or any other dwell- 
ing. The person who had used these abrupt 
means, desired her to tie a handkerchief over 
her head, and not wait for a hat, as a lady 
of the first quality in the neighbourhood was 
in want of her immediate assistance. He 
then led to a stile at a short distance, where 
there was a horse saddled, and with a pil- 
lion on its back ; he desired her to seat 
herself first, and then mounting immediately 
he set off at a brisk trot. After they had 
travelled about three quarters of an hour 
she expressed great alarm, but her con- 
ductor assured her that no harm should 
happen to her, and that she should be well 
paid, but added, that they had still further 
to go. He got off his horse several times 
to open gates, and they crossed many 
ploughed and corn fields, for though it was 
quite dark she could discover that they had 
quitted the high road within two miles of 
her own house ; she also said they crossed 
a river twice. After they had been about 
an hour and a half on their journey they 
entered a paved court or yard, as she con- 
cluded from the clattering of the horse's feet 
on the stones. Her guide now lifted her off 
the horse, and conducted her through a long- 
dark passage, in which she only saw a 
glimmering of light at a distance, which was 
concealed or put out upon the shutting of a 
large gate through which they passed. As 
soon as they arrived at a sort of landing 
place, her guide addressed her to the fol- 
lowing effect. 'You must now suffer me to 
put this cap and bandage over your eyes, 
which will allow you to speak and breathe, 
but not to see ; keep up your presence of 
mind, it will he wanted, and 1 again repeat, 
no harm will happen to you.' Then con- 
ducting her into a chamber, lie continued, 
' now you are in a room with a lady in 
labour, perform your office well and you 
shall be amply rewarded, but if you attempt 
to remove the bandage from your eyes, take 
the consequences of your rashness.' Here 
she said that horror and dread had so be- 
numbed her faculties, that had any assistance 
been wanted she was rendered incapable of 
giving it, but nature had effected all that 
was requisite, and what remained for her to 
do was little more than to receive a male 
infant, and to give it into the hands of a 
female, who by her voice she conceived to 
be a woman advanced in years. Her patient 
she was sure w;as a very young lady, but 
she was forbid to ask any questions, or to 
speak a word. As soon as the event was 
completely over, she had a glass of wine 
given her, and was told to prepare to return 
home by another road, which was not quite 
so near, but free from gates or stiles. She 
begged to be allowed to repose herself for 
a quarter of an hour in the arm chair, whilst 
the horse was getting ready, pleading the

extreme fatigue she had undergone the pre- 
ceding day ; and under the pretence of 
sleeping she made those reflections which 
Aiid the foundation of that legal enquiry, 
which afterwards took place. She, undis- 
covered and unsuspected, contrived with 
her scissors to cut off a small bit of the 
curtain. This circumstance, added to others 
of a local nature, was supposed sufficient 
evidence to fix the transaction on the house 
pointed out, and, but for the scrutiny and 
cross-examination on the trial, would have 
given the law great scope over the lives of 
several persons, as it appeared improbable 
that fewer than five or six persons could 
have been concerned in a business so regu- 
larly conducted. In the course of her evi- 
dence the midwife affirmed she perceived an 
uncommon smell of burning, which followed 
them through all the avenues of the house 
to the court-yard, where she remounted the 
horse. She said that she remarked to the 
guide, that she saw a light and smelt a smell 
of burning, which he said was the work of 
the gardeners, who were firing the weeds 
and burning the moles amongst them, as 
they always did at that time of year. And 
she stated, that at the time of parting from 
the guide, which was within fifty yards of 
her own dwelling, he made her swear to 
observe secrecy, at the same time putting a 
purse into her hand, which she afterwards 
found contained twenty-five guineas ; and 
rill that moment the bandage had never been 
removed from her eyes. The morning was 
then breaking ; she also deposed that she 
counted the steps on the first and second 
landing-places, which agreed with those of 
the suspected house, and the piece of cur- 
tain was found to match one exactly in a 
room where the birth of the child was sup- 
posed to have taken place. With such 
evidence it was expected that nothing short 
of a conviction of some of the parties for 
the murder of a new born infant must have 
followed ; particularly as a beautiful young 
lady in the family (a niece) had withdrawn 
herself from her acquaintance, under the 
plea of going to a convent at Avignon, to 
learn French, when she had been seen more 
than once after her declared departure, by 
a fruit woman, looking out of a small win- 
dow next to her usual apartment. In the 
course of the trial, however, the circum- 
stance of the curtain was rendered suspi- 
cious, by its being proved on cross-exami- 
nation, that a Catholick servant had left the 
family in malice a short time before, with 
horrid declarations of revenge, on account 
of her having been forbidden to attend mass, 
which suggested a possibility of her sup- 
plying the fact of the curtain, as well as all 
the local description given by the midwife 
of the suspected mansion. The midwife's 
story, though apparently plausible, was 



considerably weakened by her swearing 
positively to so many and doubtful points. 
First, that of her distinguishing the being 
carried over corn and ploughed fields, though 
she only knew, it being so extremely dark, 
that they had quitted the high road from the 
sound of the horse's feet. Next, her affirm- 
ing that when introduced into the chamber 
she was so benumbed and stupified with 
horror and dread, that in a case of difficulty 
she could have given no assistance ; yet, 
during this state of horror and dread, she 
could, though blindfolded, swear positively 
that her patient was very young ; the child 
a male ; and the person to whom it was 
given advanced in years ; and immediately 
afterwards had the presence of mind to 
execute the ingenious but hazardous ex- 
periment of cutting the curtain. She also 
said, that she remarked to the guide her 
seeing a tight, as well as smelling the burn- 
ing, yet affirmed immediately afterwards, 
that the bandage was not taken from her till 
she was within fifty yards of her own house. 
But an apparent contradiction, and which 
was supposed to have over-turned her whole 
evidence, was her positively insisting that in 
their way to the house, where her assistance 
was wanted, they crossed a ford twice, when 
it was prored that there was only one 
straight river between the two houses. Now 
supposing the guide to have made a wheel 
round, in order to deceive the midwife, and 
to have again crossed the river, they must 
still have forded it a third time to arrive at 
the suspected house. All these circum- 
stances being pointed out, and commented 
on by the judge for the consideration of the 
jurymen, they returned a verdict of acquittal 
without leaving the court. 

" Whether the suspected parties were or 
were not guilty of the crime of murder, 
could only be known to themselves and the 
great Disposer of all things ; but no judge 
or jury would have established a different 
verdict from such defective evidence. The 
train of calamity which succeeded the trial 
may give rise to melancholy reflections, and 
was, no doubt, considered by the multitude, 
to have been the eft'ect of divine visitation. 
In few words, the owner of Littlecott soon 
became involved in estate and deranged in 
mind, and is stated to have died a victim to 
despondency, and though the fate of the 
niece is unknown or forgotten, ruin and 
misery are said to have befallen the family 
which survived him."

The genealogist George Crawfurd's de- 
duction of this family from Swane, of Danish 
origin, solely from that person's holding part 
of the barony ofCrawfurd, is palpably errone- 
ous. Swane having been contemporary with 
Galfiridus, and with his father, DominusGal- 
fridus de Crawford, in the reign of William, 
the Lion. It is onlv stilted, however, pro- 
blematically by Crawfurd. Chalmers's en- 
quiries amongst the records in the Tower 
bad not, when Crawfurd wrote, given the 
right direction to antiquarian research. 
The recent discovery, in an old illuminated 
manuscript at the British Museum, in the 
Cotton collection, of the arms of Stephen, 
third earl of Richmond, who died in 1104, 
and their close similitude to the coat borne 
by the Crawfurds, coupled with other cor- 
roborative circumstances, lias thrown new 
light upon the subject, and leaves hardly a 
doubt that those old Earls of Richmond, 
and this ancient and widely dispersed Cale- 
donian family sprang from a common pro- 
genitor. The original coat of the earls of 
Richmond, as shewn by Gale, in his Regis- 
trum Honorum Richmondice, was ermine ; 
the arms of Britanny, whence those earls 
distended. Gale further states, and is 
supported by Clarkson, in his History of 
Richmond, that the family adopted gules, 
the tincture of royalty, in addition to ermine, 
as a mark of gratitude to their royal bene- 
factor, William, the Conqueror, under whose

The bordure in the Richmond shield indicates 
cadency, the earls being a younger branch of the 
house of Britanny, and was omitted after the

440 manors, and 140 knight's fees in the

Some of their successors carried leopards 
or over the gules, hence gules and or became 
the colours of the lords of Bedale, sprung 
from Brian, second son of Alan, fourth earl 
of Richmond. The ERMINE, after gules 
had been adopted, was variously timbered 
by some, in canton, as depicted in an 
ancient picture at the Museum ; by others, 
in bend, as in the engraving above, (which 
with the bordure was adopted, and still 
continues as the arms of the town of Rich- 
mond, taken evidently from the arms of its 
founder, Stephen, third earl, from whom it 
received its first charter. — see Clarkson),

Reginald, the youngest son of the fourtli 
earl of Richmond, and the great-great 
grandson of G alfridi is, duke of Britanny, 
who died in 1008, does not appear to have 
founded any, establishment or family in 
England, but at the period in which he 
lived, we find at the court of King David, 
in Scotland, a person bearing the name of 
Reginald, whom George Crawford deems 
the extreme ancestor of the Crawfurds, and 
who obtained large grants from that prince ; 
whose policy it was, as stated in the intro- 
ductory observations to the Halliday family 
(page 127), to allure the young and un- 
endowed Anglo-Norman knights, to settle 
in his dominions. This Reginald was father 
or grandfather of the Dominus Galfridus 
de Crawfurd, who frequently witnessed 
the charters of William, the Lion, and ap- 
pears to have received many marks beside 
of royal consideration, demonstrative of 
alliance to the court ; for which Crawfurd 
states himself unable to account. If, how- 
ever, Reginald were, as now conjectured, 
one of the sons of the Earl of Richmond, 
(and of which the concurrent testimony of 
a variety of facts forms the strongest pre- 
sumption), he, Galfridus, would be closely 
connected with the Lion, bis uncle, Conan

Le Petit, fifth earl of Richmond (Regi- 
nald's brother), having married Margaret, 
daughter of Prince Henry, of Scotland, 
Earl of Huntingdon, and sister of King 
William : thus his rank, at court, and the 
high degree of confidence he enjoyed there 
would be easily explained. 

In fine, the aggrandizement of Reginald 
and Galfridus at the Scottish court — the 
constant recurrence of those names in both 
pedigrees — and above all, the identity of 
arms, — for be the ermine carried in bend 
or in fesse it is the same bearing (the varia- 
tion being adopted probably as a mere dif- 
ference to distinguish brothers), present so 
strong a combination of circumstantial evi- 
dence, (in absence of proof by charter, 
which, through the destruction of so many 
of the Scotch records by King Edward I. 
of England, is now impossible) as to remove, 
in our humble opinion, almost every doubt 
from the hypothesis, that the old earls of 
Richmond, and the Crawfurds of Scotland, 
sprang from a common ancestor. 

Vaughan of Burlton Hall. 

P. 241, col. 1, 1. 9 from foot. Francis 
Chambre,* of Wolverley, living in 
1666, is erroneously stated to have 
been father, instead of grandfather, 
of John Chambre, who married Miss 
Waring. The said Francis was 
buried at Loppington, 9th May, 
1678 ; his grandson, John, at New- 
ton Chapel, 13th March, 1718, aged 
sixty-seven ; Sarah, the widow of 
John, was interred in the same vault 
with her husband, 26th December, 
1723 ; these particulars are taken 
from the monuments of the Chambre 
family, in Newton Chapel, to which 
Francis Chambre was a munificent 
benefactor. 
The following descent of the Loppington 
branch of the family is principally from the 
registers of Loppington parish, and from 
monumental inscriptions in that church : 

Humphrey Chambre, who was living 
24th Henry VIII. (by a copy of court roll 
of the manor of Loppington, dated 4th 
December, in that year, whereby he was 
admitted customary tenant of a copyhold 
estate within the said manor) married Jane 
Barker, of Coogage, and had two sons, 
namely, Thomas, his heir, now repre- 
sented by Robert Chambre Vaughan, 
esq. of Burlton Hall, as stated at page 
242, and 

George Chambre, the first of the family 
settled at Loppington. This gentleman,

earliest ancestor of the family who passed into 
Kngland with William of Normandy, is enrolled 
at Battel Abbey. (See Burke's Extinct Peerage.)

pears from an award made 6th May, in that 
year, to which he was a party, married, and 
had, with a younger son, who was father of 
Francis Chambre, esq. of Wolverley, his 
successor, 

Francis Chambre, esq. of Loppington, 
who left, by his wife, Mary, buried in the 
chancel of Loppington church, 18th June, 
1692, two sons and a daughter, viz. 

George, his heir. 

John, who died s. p. and was buried at 
Loppington, 23rd July, 1683. 

Mary. 
The elder son, 

George Chambre, esq. of Loppington,

Eddowes, of Hanmer, and by her, who was 
buried at Loppington, 17th November, 1685, 
had one son and five daughters, viz. 

George, his heir. 

Catherine, bapt. 22nd August, 1663,

Mr. Chambre died in 1691, aged fifty-three, 
and was interred under the communion table, 
in the church of Loppington : his epitaph 
represents him as having been " a gentleman 
of great sense and integrity, a good christian 
in profession and practice, a loyal gentleman 
to his king and country, faithful to his friend, 
and a great benefactor to his poor neigh- 
bours. He was succeeded by his only son, 

George Chambre, esq. of Loppington, 
bapt. 27th September, 1666, at whose de- 
cease, issueless, 8th April, 1707, the estates 
were inherited by his nephew, 

The Rev. George Legh, D.D. vicar of 
Halifax, who married thrice, but died with- 
out issue, directing, by his will, which bears 
date 10th March, 1779, the sale of the Lop- 
pington estate : it was in consequence pur- 
chased by Thomas Dickin, esq. high sheriff 
of Shropshire in 1799, and is now the pro- 
perty of his son, Thomas Dickin, esq. of 
Loppington House, who is an acting magis- 
trate for the county of Salop, and was for- 
merly major of the Shropshire militia. He 
espoused, in 1827, Jane, fourth daughter of 
the Hon. Edward Massy, and sister to the

Edwardes Tucker, ofSealyham. 

Although this family has lost its own 
early records, there are documents in exist- 
ence, certified by its chiefs living in the reign 
of Queen Elizabeth and James I. from 
which we are enabled to correct the state- 
ment at page 314, and to complete the 
early descents. 

The Edwardses, of Trefgarne, quite dif- 
ferent in descent from the Edwardses of 
Rliydygors, are a branch of the numerous 
descendants of Tudor Trevor, a powerful 
chieftain, whose residence was on the border 
of North Wales and Shropshire, whence he 
is styled the head of the tribe of tin- Marches, 
of Wales. Third in direct line from Tudor 
Trevor, was Cynric, or Cynvrig, the son of 
Rhiwlillow, which Cynric was lord of Chris- 
tionydd, Cynric, and Maelor Cymraeg, in 
North Wales. Eleventh from Cynric was 
En\VARD-ap-John, who resided, not at Chirk 
Castle, as stated in page 314, but in Chirk - 
land, as a considerable district in Denbigh- 
shire is termed. He married Catherine, 
daughter of Ievan, or Evan-ap-William, of 
Mold, in Flintshire, and had issue,

ters. 

2. Richard Edwardes, the first of the 
family who settled in Pembrokeshire. 
He was chancellor of St. David's, and 
a justice of the peace for the county of 
Pembroke, in the year 1597. Ri- 
chard Edwardes married Mirabel, 
daughter of Henry Evans, by Jane, 
his wife, sister to Sir William Wake, 
but had no issue.

Edwardes Tucker, of Sealyham. 

1. Margaret, to. to Thomas Hewett, son 
and heir of Thomas Hewett, chanter 
of St. David's, and a justice of peace 
for Pembrokeshire. 
The three brothers above mentioned were 
the first members of this family who adopted 
the surname of Edwardes ; and it was not 
in the reign of Henry the Fourth, as as- 
serted at p. 314, but in that of Henry VII. 
that surnames were first adopted by the 



principal gentry of Wales. In this family, 
the surname of Edwardes was not assumed 
until the time of Elizabeth, when Richard 
Edwardes, being appointed chancellor of 
St. David's, appears to have gathered all 
the surviving members of his family into 
Pembrokeshire. 

Thomas Edwardes, the second son of Ed- 
ward-ap-John, was twice married : by his 
first wife he had two sons, Nicholas and 
Richard, and the same number by his second 
wife, Sage, daughter of Thomas Tucker, 
viz. Owen and Richard. The elder son of 
the second marriage, 

Owen Edwardes, was living in 1613, and 
was then married to Ethliw, or Elliw, dau.

whom he had a son,

ISTED of ECTON. 

The following curious Descent (through the 
Baskervilles ) of many eminent Families, 
from several of the Royal Houses of Eu- 
rope, was compiled by Dr. Percy, the cele- 
brated Bishop of Dromore, and is authen- 
ticated by incontestible proofs. 

High Capet, elected King of France in 



987, died in 996, and was succeeded by his 
son, 

Robert, King of France, crowned during 
his father's lifetime. This monarch espoused 
Constance, daughter of the Count of Aries, 
and left at his decease in 1031 three sons 
and one daughter, namely, 

Henry, his heir. 

Robert, ancestor of the ducal house of 

Burgundy. 
Eudo, Bishop of Auxerre. 

Adela, who wedded, in 1027, Bald- 
win V. Earl of Flanders,* and had a 
daughter, 

Maud, consort of William, the 
Conqueror of England, and mo- 
ther of 
Henry I. King of England, 
who espoused Maud, daugh- 
ter of Malcolm III. of Scot- 
land, by his queen, Mar- 
garet, daughter of Edward 
the Outlaw, son of King 
Edmund Ironside, and had 
a daughter, the Empress 
Maid, whose son, 
Henry, ascended the Eng- 
lish throne as second 
of his name, and was 
father of 
John, King of Eng- 
land, who left, by 
Agatha de Ferrars, 
a natural daugh- 



• Through this alliance, the descendants of 

Adela derive from Ciiaiu.emagnk, Emperor of the 

West, and from the Saxon Kings of England 

thus : —

copacy, on the night before Christmas-day, 
about ten o'clock, a knock was heard at the 
door of the vicarage, and upon the servant 
enquiring who was there, the answer was — 
a friend from Gateshead, (where the Rev. 
gentleman's father was rector) upon which 
orders were given to open the door, when a 
person rushed in armed, and found his way 
into the room where Mr. Werge was sitting. 
He, without preface, declared his intention, 
and made a stroke with a sword, which in 
all probability would have proved fatal, but 
the room being low, and a large beam pro- 
jecting across the ceiling, the weapon caught 
the beam, and only inflicted a trifling wound 
on one shoulder. The reverend gentleman,

fore he had received a thrust, which only 
pierced the flesh next his ribs ; a severe 
struggle ensued, in which the light was ex- 
tinguished, and terminated in Mr. Werge 
extricating himself, and making his way out 
at the front door, where he found two other 
ruffians, who eagerly enquired if he had 
killed him. Mr. Werge, with great pre- 
sence of mind, answered — " Yes, yes," 
(upon which they gave way) and ran into 
the garden, but not before the villains had 
discovered their mistake, and one of them had 
discharged a pistol, happily without effect. 
The alarm being given by the servants, the 
assassins made their escape. Some few 
years after, the confession of a man executed 
at Edinburgh, for murder appeared in print, 
in which he acknowledged many crimes, 
but none had distressed his conscience more 
than the belief of having murdered a clergy- 
man, near the foot of Cheviot, of whom 
every person spoke well, and which he was 
hired to perform. Mr. Werge married Eli- 
zabeth, daughter of — Wood, esq. of Fallo-

Sir Geoffrey Dutton, who inheriting 
when religious zeal was at its zenith, en- 
rolled himself amongst the soldiers of the 
Cross, for the plains of Palestine. " The 
crest," says Ormerod, " which is still borne 
by the Warburtons, refers to the Holy Land, 
and was probably gained by some heroic 
exploit in the expedition." Sir Geoffrey de 
Dutton had a mansion at Budworth, whence 
he is sometimes designated, but at this 
period the family resided chiefly at Sutton. 
He died about the year 1248, and was s. by 
his son, 

Sir Geoffrey de Dutton, knt. living in

house the Priory of Warburton was now

NEVILE, OF THORNEY. 



Utncage. 



This is a branch of the once great and 
powerful family of Nevile, Lords of Raby, 
who subsequently became Earls of West- 
morland,* and whose descent is deducable 
from our Saxon annals. 

Waltheof, Officiary Earl of Northum- 
berland, in the reign of King Edgak, A.D. 
969, had by his wife, Judith, daughter of 
the Earl of Champaign, a son, 

Uchtred, who was made Earl of North- 
umberland, (his father then living) in the 
year 980, and was murdered by Thursbrand, 
in 1017. He was thrice married, first, to 
Edfrid, daughter of Aldane, Bishop of 
Durham, secondly, to Sejan, daughter of 
Styr Fitz Ulf, and thirdly, to Elsgina, dau. 
of King Ethelred. By the last lady he 
had an only daughter, 

Agatha, heiress of Raby, and other large 
possessions which had belonged to her 
mother. She espoused Maldred, son of 
Crinan, an eminent Thane, and bore an 
only son, 

Cospatrick, who obtained from the Con- 
queror the earldom of Northumberland for 
a considerable sum of money, but after- 
wards becoming discontented, fled into 
Scotland, with other great northern chiefs, 
taking his mother and sisters, and Edgar 
Athling, along with him. He subsequently 
made several hostile incursions into Eng- 
land, and lost his earldom, anno 1072, in 
consequence ; but obtained Dunbar, and 
the adjoining lands in Loudon, from the 
Scottish monarch. He d. in 1073, leaving 
issue, 

i. Dolphin, who became Earl of Dun- 
bar, 
ii. Waltheof, a benefactor to St. Mary's 

Abbey, York. 
in. Uchtred, of whom presently. 
iv. Juliana, married, at the instigation 
of Henry II., to Ranulph de Merley, 
of Morpeth, a great Northumberland 
baron. 
v. Etheldreda, m. to Duncan, natural 
son of Malcolm, King of Scotland. 
The third son, 

Uchtred, was Lord of Raby, in which he 
was s. by his son, 

Dolphin, Lord of Raby, who wedded 
Alice, daughter of Walcher, Bishop of Dur- 
ham, and Earl of Northumberland, and was 
s. by his son, 

Mildred Fitz-Dolphin, Lord of Raby 
and Staindrop, in the county of Durham, 
whose son, 



* Refer to Burke's Extinct and Dormant Peer- 
age. 



Robert Fitz-Maldred, Lord of Raby, 
espoused Isabel De Nevile, only daughter 
of Geoffrey De Nevile,* by Emma, daugh- 
ter and heir of Bertram De Bulmer, a great 
baron of the north, and eventually heiress 
of her brother, Henry De Nevile, of Brans- 
path and Durham. f At this marriage it 
was stipulated that all its issue, male, should 
assume the surname of Nevile; which issue 
were, 

i. Geffrey Fitz Robert, who bore 

" gules, a saltier arg." 
ii. John (Sir), of Pickhall, in York- 
shire, bore the same as his elder 
brother, but for distinction, powdered 
with ermines. This Sir John Nevile 
was ancestor of the present Charles 
Nevile, esq. of Holt, in the county 
of Leicester. 
ill. William who turned colours, bear- 
ing arg. a saltier gules. J From this 
William descended the Neviles of 
Holbeck, in Yorkshire, some of 
whose family are still living in the 
neighbourhood of Leeds. 
The eldest son, 

Geoffrey (Fitz Robert) De Nevill, 

Lord of Raby, Branspath, &c. &c. had by 

his wife, Margaret, two sons, namely, 

Robert, his successor. 

Geoffrey, governor of Scarborough 

Castle, in the reign of Henry III. 

He m. Margaret, daughter and heir 

of Sir John Longvillers, of Hornby 

Castle, in Lancashire, and died in 

the 13th Edward I. then seised of 

the manor of Appleby, and other 

lands in Lincolnshire ; the castle and 

manor of Hornby, in the county of 

Lancaster ; and Hoton Longvillers, 

in Yorkshire ; the entire of which he 

acquired by his marriage. He left 

a son and heir, 

John Nevill, from whom des- 
cended the Neviles of Hornby, 
whose heir, female, 



* This Geoffrey was grandson of Gilbert 
De Nevill, a noble Norman, who came into 
England as admiral to William the Conqueror, 
and obtained from his victorious Chief large ter- 
ritorial grants in the county of Northumberland, 
as well as an augmentation to his coat armour, in 
testimony of the eminent services he had rendered, 
viz. a ship sa. in afield or, to be quartered by him 
and his descendants.

Bulmer.

NEVILE, OF THORXEY 



Margaret Nevile, wedded 
Tliomas Beaufort, Duke of 
Exeter, who d. in 1426. 
The elder son and heir, 

Robert De Nevill, upon doing his 
fealty in the 30th Henry III. had livery of 
all the lands which he inherited from his 
grandfather, Rohert Fitz Maldred. In the 
43rd of the same reign he had a military 
summons to march to the relief of the King 
of Scotland, and he was then constituted 
governor of the castles of Norliam and 
\\ erke. In the next year he had a similar 
command in Bamborough Castle, and in two 
years afterwards, he was made warden of 
all the Royal Forests beyond the Trent, 
which was followed by the appointment of 
Justice Itinerant, for the pleas of those 
forests. In the 47th he was one of the 
barons who undertook for the king's ob- 
servance of the ordinances of Oxford, and 
in the same turbulent era he was appointed 
captain general of all the kind's forces be- 
yond the Trent, sheriff of ^ orkshire, and 
governor of the castle of York. In 1266, 
we find him governor of Pickering Castle, 
and in L270, again governor of Bamborough, 
although in the interim he had joined the 
standard of the barons. He in. Ida. daugh- 
ter of Roger !>■ 1J< rtram, Lord of Mitford, 
and had a son, 

Robert, who wedded Mary, elder 
daughter and co-heir of Ralph Fitz 
Ranulph, Lord of Middleham, bj 
whom he acquired the manor of Mid- 
dleham, the manor of Carleton, and 
the forest of Coverdale. He died in 
the lifetime of his father (anno 1271), 
leaving an only son, 

Ranulph, successor to his grand- 
father. 
He d. in 1282, and was s. by his grandson, 
RANULPH DeNevill, who, being a minor, 
obtained permission from the king that his 
friends might plough and manage his lands ; 
and in the 13th EDWARD I. had livery of 
certain manors, part of his inheritance. He 
was summoned to parliament as a 15 \ it« >n , 
on the 8th June, 121)4, and from that period 
to the 18th February, 1331. He was in the 
wars of France, temp. EDWARD I. and in 
those of Scotland in the next reign. It is 
said, however, that he little minded secular 
business, but devoted the principal part of 
his time to conversation with the Canons of 
Merton and Coverham, upon whom he be- 
stowed some considerable grants.* His

He espoused secondly, Margery, daughter 
of John, son of Marmaduke De Thweng, 
but had no other issue. He d. in 1331, and 
was i. by his only surviving sou, 

Ralph i>e NEVILL, second baron, sum- 
moned to parliament from 20th November, 
1330, to 20th January. 1330. This noble- 
man, in the time of his father, was retained 
by indenture to serve the Lord Henry de 
Percy for life, in peace or war, against all 
men except the king, with twenty men at 
arms, whereof five to be knights, receiving 
-t'lOO. sterling per annum. In the 7th of 
Edward III. his lordship was one of the 
commissioners Bent into Scotland, there to 
see that the covenant between Edward de 
Baliol, King of Scots, and his royal master, 



.." It seems that contrarv to the custom of 
In- predecessors, he required that the Trior should 
feast himself, and those whom he might think 
proper to bring with him, at the presentation of 
the .stag; that the prior's servants should be set 
aside for the occasion, ami that his own servants 
and officers should be placed in their stead. To 
all which the churchman demurred. Nevill, in 
maintenance of his rights, invited .lobn De Baliol, 
of Barnard Castle, to accompany him as a guest 
to the priory, but Baliol refused, declaring that lie 
was totally ignorant of the Nevills having at any 
time such a privilege there. While Sir William 
De Brompton, the chief justice of the bishopric, 
acknowledged that he was himself the first who 
commenced the extravagant practice ; for being a 
young man, and delighting in hunting, he came 
with the Lord Nevill at the offering of the stag, 
and said to his companions, " Come let vs go into 
the abheu and wind our horns." The prior further 
alleged that none of Rannlph's predecessors had 
ever made such a claim, but were satisfied with a 
breakfast only on bringing the stag, and that the 
Lord himself never staved dinner, unless specially 
invited. During the life of Ranulph, the matter 
remained unadjusted, but in the time of his son 
and successor, Ralph, second lord, it was finally 
settled, as thus stated by Dugdale. "In this 
year, doing his fealty to William, Trior of Dur- 
ham, upon Lammas day, for the manor of Raby, he 
told him, that he would offer the stag as his an- 
cestors had done ; saving that, whereas his father 
required, that the prior's servants should be set 
aside at that time, and his own serve in their 
stead ; he would be content that his snould attend 
together with those of the prior ; and whereas his 
father insisted, that his servants should only he 
admitted to dinner ; he stood upon it that bis 
should be there entertained the whole day, and 
likewise the morrow at breakfast; whereupon the 
prior made answer, "that none of his ancestors 
were ever so admitted, and that he would rath' r 
(pi it the stag, than suffer any new custom, to the

were ratified by the parliament of that king- 
dom ; and the next year he was joined 
n ith Henry de Percy in the wardenship of 
the Marches of Northumberland, Cumber- 
land, and Westmorland. He had subse- 
quently high and confidential employments, 
and was constantly engaged in the wars of 
Scotland and France. He m. Alice, dau. 
and co-heir of Hugh de Audley, and had 
issue, 

I. John (Sir), who succeeded his father, 
and was third lord. (For the conti- 
nuation of his lordship's line, refer 
to Burke's Extinct and Dormant 
Peerage.) 

II. William (Sir), gentleman of the bed- 
chamber to King Richard II. 

III. Thomas, Bishop of Ely. 
iv. Robert (Sir), of Eldon. 

v. Alexander, Archbishop of York. 

VI. Ralph (Sir), of Candall. 
This Ralph, Lord Nevill, died in 1367, and 
was buried at Durham ; at a mile westward 



prejudice of their church." But to this, Ralph 
replied, " that he would perform the whole service 
or none, and put the trial of his right upon the 
country." The prior, therefore, knowing him to 
be so powerful, and that the country would not 
displease him, declined the offer; howbeit, at 
length, to gain his favour, in regard he had no 
small interest at court, and might do him a kind- 
ness or displeasure, was content for that one time, 
he should perform it as he pleased, so that it 
might not be drawn into example afterwards : and 
to the purpose proposed, that that indenture should 
be made betwixt them. Whereupon the Lord 
Nevill brought but few with him, and those more 
for the honor of the prior, than a burthen ; and so 
shortly after dinner took his leave, but left one of 
his servants to lodge there all night, and to take 
his breakfast there on the next day ; protesting 
that being both a son and tenant of the church, he 
would not be burthensome to it, in respect it 
would be no advantage to himself, but might much 
damnine him." He appears afterwards to have 
submitted the matter entirely to the award of the 
prior, and the. elder monks. The latter of whom 
reported, " That they had often seen the stag 
offered, but that the lord never staid dinner unless 
invited to do so bv the prior;" in this they were 
confirmed by the old men of the country^ who far- 
ther stated, " that so soon as the stag was brought, 
it was carried to the kitchen, and that those who 
conveyed it were taken into the hall to breakfast, 
as they that bring their rents used to be." " More- 
over, whenever it so happened that any of the 
Lords Nevill were bidden to dinner, his cook was 
admitted into the kitchen to prepare a dish for 
him ; so likewise another servant in the cellar, to 
choose his drink ; and in like manner, some other 
at the gate, who knew his servants and followers 
merely to let them in, and to keep out others, who, 
under pretext of being servants, might then intrude. 
But this was onlv done by the prior, as out ol 
courtesy and respect, and not at all out of right."

became established at Royston, and Cocken- 
hatch in Hertfordshire. Sir Robert, who 
was knighted at Wilton by Edward VI. in

FAMILY OF CESAR. 

The family of Cesar was of Italian origin, 
and its ancestors, under the surname of 
Adelmare, sprung from Ademar, Count of 
Genoa, and Admiral of France in the year 
1086, had been long settled in the city of 
Treviso. 

Peter Maria Adelmare, of that place, a 
doctor of both laws, and particularly eminent 
as a civilian, lived towards the close of the 
15th century. He espoused Paola, daugh- 
ter and co-heir of John De Paolo Caesarino, 
and had three sons, Claudius, Caesar, and 
John-Baptist, of whom the second, 

Cesar Adelmare, haviug been educated 
for the medical profession, took his degree 



of doctor in the University of Padua, and 
came to England in 1550. Practising ex- 
tensively for some time in London, he was 
appointed physician to Queen Mary, and in 
the subsequent reign placed at the head of 
the medical department at court. Dr. 
Adelmare wedded Margaret, daughter of 
Martin Perin, or Perient, by whom (who 
in. for her second husband, Michael Lock, 
of London) he had issue, 
i. Julius, his heir. 
H. Charles, a military officer, 
ill. Thomas (Sir), b. in 1561, a barrister 
of eminence, who was appointed 26th 
May, 1610, one of the barons of 
the Exchequer. This gentleman »/.

third wife, Susanna, daughter and 
co-heir of Sir William Ryther, knt.

Sir Julius Ct.sar, was born at Tottenham, 
in Middlesex, in 1557, and baptized at St. 
Dunstan's, 10th February, in that year, by 
the names of Julius-Caesar, the latter of 
which he afterwards, at the queen's desire,

adopted as a surname. The exalted rank 
of his sponsors at the font affords a sufficient 
proof of the high estimation in which his 
father was held at court ; they were Wil- 
liam Powlett, Marcpais of Winchester, Henry 
Fitzalan, Earl of Arundel, and the Queen 
herself, represented by the Lady Montacute. 
Becoming a student of Magdalen College, 
Oxford, he took his degree of Bachelor of 
Arts in 1575, and of Master in 1578. He 
remained at the University until the end of 
the following year, when he went to Paris, 
to finish the study of his profession as a 
civilian. After filling several minor appoint- 
ments, Dr. Caesar was constituted in 1584, 
Judge of the Admiralty Court, in 1591, a 
Master of Request, and in 1603 he received 
the honor of knighthood. In 1606, upon the 
resignation of George Hume, Earl of Dun- 
bar, Sir Julius was constituted Chancellor 
and Under Treasurer of the Exchequer, and 
in the subsequent year sworn of the Privy 
Council. In 1610 he obtained by patent 
under the great seal, the reversion of the 
office of Master of the Rolls, "after the 
death, forfeiture, or surrender" of Sir Ed- 
ward Philips, and the death of that learned 
judge occurring on the 11th September, 
1614, Sir Julius was placed of course on 
the Rolls Bench. Sir Julius Caesar m. first, 
in 1581, Dorcas, daughter of Sir Richard

thirdly, Anne, daughter of Sir Henry Wode- 
house, of Wraxham, in Norfolk, relict of 
William Hungate, esq. of East Bradenham, 
in the same shire, and niece of the great 
Sir Francis Bacon. By the former (who d. 
in 1614) he had issue, 

I. John (Sir), of Hyde Hall, in Herts, 
b. 20th October, 1597, who m. Anne, 
daughter of William Hungate, esq.

CHESTER, OF BUSH HALL. 



Sir Julius Ca?sar died on Easter Day, 18th 
April, 1636, in the seventy-ninth year of his 
age, and was buried on the 28th, in the 
chancel of the church of Great St. Helen's, 
in Bishopsgate Street, where his monument 
remains in a state of excellent preservation. 
" His character," says Lodge, " presents to 
us a picture of the most perfect integrity, 
sweetened and adorned by great mildness of 
temper, and a constant benevolence. His 
understanding was rather grave and solid 
than brilliant, and therefore well adapted in 
his time to the exercise of a profession, in 
which sound and sober reasoning was held 
in preference to flippant sarcasms and half 
witted repartees. His conduct on the bench 
displayed the most earnest desire to do jus- 
tice, the most unwearied patience in the 
pursuit of it, and a sympathy in the suffer- 
ings of the unfortunate which came under 
his judicial observation, of which no parallel 
instance can be found." His eldest sur\ iving 
son and heir, 

Sir Charles Adelmare Cesar, knt. born 
in 1589, was admitted Doctor of both Laws 
in the University of Oxford, 7th December, 
1612, and received the honour of knight- 
hood, 6th October, in the succeeding year. 
Adopting, like his father, the profession of 
the law, Sir Charles was eventually ap- 
pointed Master of the Rolls.* He 
espoused first, Anne, daughter of Sir Peter 
Vandlore, knt. an eminent merchant in 
London, and by her (who died in 1625) lie 
had, to survive infancy, two daughters, Ja- 
comina, m. to Sir Henry Anderson, knt. of 
Penley ; and Anne, the wife of Henry Le- 
vingston, esq. of Much Eldever, in Hants. 
Sir Charles wedded, secondly, in 1626, Jain, 
daughter of Sir Edward Barkham, knt. 
alderman of London, and had issue, to sur- 
vive childhood, 

Julius, his heir. 

Henry, successor to his brother. 
Charles, of Great Gransden, in Herts, 
b. in 1635-6, who m. in 1662, Joanna, 
youngest daughter of Sir Thomas 
Leventhorpe, by Dorothy, his wife, 
second daughter of Sir Giles Ailing- 
ton, of Horseheath, and died in 1707, 
leaving issue, 

1. Charles, of Great Gransden, 
b. in 1664, M.P. for Hertford, 
appointed treasurer of the navy 

* Among the MSS. of his second son, Charles 
Caesar, we find the following entry : " June the 
14th, 1640, Sir Charles Caesar, knt. was sworn 
Muster of the Rolls in Chancery, or assistant 
Judge to the Lord High Chancellor of England, 
for which high and profitable office he paid to 
King Charles the First, fifteen thousand pounds, 
broad pieces of old gold, and lent the king two 
thousand more, when he went to meet his rebel- 
lious Scotch army, invading England."

Sir Charles Caesar died of the small pox, 
6th December, 1642, and was s. by his eld- 
est son, 

JULIUS Ct.sar, of Bennington Place, in 
the county of Herts, who survived his father 
but five days, falling a victim to the same 
malady ; the estates then devolved upon his 
brother, 

Sir Henry Adelmare Cesar, knt. of 
Bennington Place, M.P. for the county of 
Herts, who espoused, in 1649, Elizabeth, 
only dau. and heiress of Robert Angel, esq. a 
Turkey merchant, and had surviving issue, 

Charles, his heir. 

Jane, m. to Sir Thomas Pope Blount, 
bart. of Tittenhanger. 
Sir Henry, " who was endowed," saith 
Chauncey, " with good learning, great parts, 
a quick apprehension, and a clear and dis- 
cerning judgment," died of the small pox in 
1667-8, and was s. by his son, 

Sir Charles Adelmare C/Esar, knt. of 
Bennington Place, M.P. for the town, and 
subsequently for the county of Herts. This 
gentleman wedded, 3rd September, 1672,

tinues Sir Henry Chauncey, "very regular 
in his life, and orderly in his family. He

was very generous to all whom he employed, 
but seldom pardoned a slight to his person 
or a contempt of his business. He kept a 
splendid house and a bountiful table for 
those who visited him, and was very noble, 
yet prudent in his entertainments. He 
declined all public employments during 
the reigns of King Charles II. and King 
James, nor would he contract a friendship 
or acquaintance with any he thought scan- 
dalous, and abhorred those who would pur- 
chase the favour of their prince with the 
price of the rights of the people." Sir 
Charles's eldest son, 

Charles Adelmare Cesar, esq. of Ben- 
nington-place,* inherited the most part of 
his father's splendid possessions, in the 
twenty-first year of his age, in all the pride 
of youth, health, and ancestry, and died at 
the age of 67, insolvent and broken-hearted, 
a melancholy memorial of the ruin of a 
once highly flourishing family. He was 
returned to parliament for Hertfordshire in 
1728, and again in 1736, by immensely ex- 
pensive elections, and squandered otherwise 
great sums in the support of what was then 
called the country party, which he espoused 
with vehemence, as well in parliament, 
where he was a frequent speaker, as in his 
own county. He m. in 1702, Mary, second 
daughter of Ralph Freeman, esq. of Aspen- 
den Hall, and had issue, 



* Mr. Caesar, on inheriting, destroved the ve- 
nerable mansion of his ancestors at Bennington, 
and built in its stead a palace of modern fashion, 
which was burnt to ashes immediatelv after it was 
completed, and before it had been inhabited.

in the county of Down, (by liis cousin, Miss

The family of TENNENT, originally Da- 
nand, or Tenand, is of respectability in 
Scotland, and the principal branch resides 
at Glasgow. 

William TENNENT, esq. of Tempo House, 

a banker at Belfast, died on the 23rd July, 

1832, leaving an only daughter and heiress.

in Downshire, anno 174.5, having eloped with an 
heiress, named Bbuce, from Aberdeenshire, in 
that year. 



is still shown the room in which Lady Cath- 
cart* was imprisoned by her husband, one 
of the Maguires of Tempo. The grounds, 
though on a small scale, are amongst the 
most beautifully laid out in Ireland. 

Town Residence — 25, Duke Street, West- 
minster. 

Seats,— Tempo, county of Fermanagh ; 
the Lodge, county of Antrim. 



• Note to Edgeworth's " Castle Rackrent." 
This part of the history of the Rackrent family 
can scarcely be thought credible ; but in justice to 
honest Thadv, it is hoped the reader will recollect 
the history of the celebrated Lady Cathcart's 
conjugal imprisonment. The editor was acquainted 
with Colonel Mc Ciuire, Lady Cathcart's hus- 
band j he has lately seen and questioned the maid 
servant who lived with Colonel Mc Guire during 
the time of Lady Cathcart's imprisonment. Her 
ladyship was locked up in her own house for many 
years, during which period her husband was 
visited by the neighbouring gentry, and it was his 
regular custom at dinner, to send his compliments 
to Lady Cathcart, informing her that the company 
had the honor to drink her ladyship's health, and 
begging to know whether there was anything at 
table that she would like to eat? The answer 
was always, " I.adv Cathcart's compliments, and 
she has every thing she wants." An instance of 
honesty in ii poor Irish woman deserves to be 
recorded: Ladv Cathcart had some remarkably 
fine diamonds, which she had concealed from her 
husband, and which she was anxious to get out of 
the house, lest he should discover them. She had 
neither servant nor friend to whom she could en- 
trust them, but she had observed a poor beggar 
woman, who used to come to the house ; she spoke 
to her from the window of the room in which she 
was confined ; the woman promised to do what 
she desired, and Lady Cathcart threw a parcel, 
containing the jewels, to her. The poor woman 
carried them to the person to whom they were di- 
rected ; and several years afterwards, when Lady 
Cathcart recovered her liberty, she received her 
diamonds safely. 

At Colonel Mc Guire's death her ladyship was 
released. The Editor, within this year, saw the 
gentleman who accompanied her to England after 
her husband's death. When she was first told of 
his death, she imagined that the news was not 
true, and that it was told only with an intention of 
deceiving her. At his death she had scarcely 
clothes sufficient to cover her; she wore a red 
wig, looked scared, and her understanding seemed 
stupified; she said that she scarcely knew one 
human creature from another ; her imprisonment 
lasted above twenty years. 

This unhappy lady was the widow of the eighth 
Lord Cathcart ; she was his lordship's second 
wife, and had no children by him. She was the 
widow, when Lord Cathcart married her, of Jo- 
seph Sabine, esq. of Tring.

Utntage. 



Sir Benet de Penclawdd accompanied 
the Conqueror to England, and received for 
his services the lordship of Penclawdd, in 
Gower, (the western extremity of Glamor- 
gan i. 

That the family of which we are treating 
was settled there at that period, divers re- 
cords fully substantiate. 

Fuller, in his Church History, pp. 165, 
166, quotes a MS. of Thomas Scriven, esq. ; 
also Fox, and the Chronicle of John of 
Brompton, in proof that, amongst others, 
Bonet or Benet was one of " such persons 
as after the battle were advanced to seig- 
neuries in this land" (Glamorgan). 

The following singular extract from the 
Harl. MSS. relates to an ancestor of this 
familv in 1113 : 

" Sir Gr. Benet, he took the of 

Ridinges* and twenty whit horses to the 
church, of whom the family have a tradition 



* N.B. Ridinges is now Rhvddings in Gower. 



that he always went to the church upon 
white horses, or covered them with white 
sheets." A. D. 1113.— Harl. MSS. 

There are also deeds now existing of 
grants of land in Gower by William Benet, 
bearing date respectively 1302 and 1350. 

In the Notitia Cambro-Britannica, in pos- 
session of the Duke of Beaufort, at Ball- 
minton, an entry is made of " Thomas Benet 
doing service to the court of Baili glas, at 
Brecon, for the manor of Upton Hagarnell." 
Sir Humfrey Benet (son of Sir Benet 
de Penclawdd), espoused Elinor, daughter 
of Morgan Llewellyn ap Ivor, and thus ac- 
quired the estate of Kilfigin, in the parish of 
Llanbader, in Monmouthshire. He was s.

uncle.

of&-r 




The ancient family of Cary derives its 
surname from the manor of Cary, or Kari, 
as it is called in Domesday Book, lying in 
the parish of St. Giles in the Heath, near 
Launceston. 

In the year 1198, according to Sir William 
Pole, 

Adam de Karry, was Lord of Castle 
Karry, in the county of Somerset. He m. 
Amy, daughter of Sir William Trevet, knt. 
and left a son and successor, 

John Karry, whose wife was Elizabeth, 
daughter of Sir Richard Stapleton, knt. 
The son and heir of this marriage, 

William Karry, was found at his decease 
in the 31st of Edward I. seised of the 
manor of West Pol worth, and his widow 
possessed of those of Paveston and Karry, 
near Tavistock. This lady's maiden name 
was (Alice) Beaumont, and she was the 
daughter of Sir William Beaumont, knt. 
Their son and heir, 

John, or William Karry, wedded Phi- 
liopa, daughter of Sir Warkie Archdeacon, 
knt. and Lad two sons, viz. Sir William 



Karry, knt. the husband of Margaret, dau. 
of Richard Bozom, of Clovelly, in the county 
of Devon, aud 

Sir John Cary, knt. who, with his 
brother Sir William, represented the county 
of Devon in Parliament, in the 36th and 
42nd Edward III. He espoused, first, Ag- 
nes, daughter of Lord Stafford, but had no 
issue. He wedded, secondly, Jane, daugh- 
ter and co-heir of Sir Guy de Bryen, knt. 
(by Ann his wife, daughter and heir of 
William Holwey, esq. of Holwey) and left 
a son, 

Sir John Cary, of Holwey, in the county 
of Devon, who was made a baron of 
the exchequer by King Richard II. " In 
this post," says Prince, " he continued 
many years, manifesting in all his actions 
an inflexible virtue and honesty. And, 
indeed, it fell out at last that he had an 
extraordinary occasion laid before him, for 
the proof and tryal thereof; upon which 
we find he proved as true as steel, for the 
greatest dangers could not affright him from 
his duty and loyalty to his distressed master, 
King Richard II., unto whom he faithfully 
adhered when most others had forsaken 
him : to his present loss indeed, but to his 
future eternal renown. For in the catas- 
trophe of that king's reign, this reverend 
judge, unable and unwilling to bow, like a 
willow, with every blast of wind, did freely 
and confidently speak his mind. He op- 
posed the proceedings for procurators, in 
regard to his oath, to take King Richard's 
resignation, his true and undoubted sove- 
reign. This cause he pursued with so much 
zeal and earnestness, that at the entrance of 
Henry IV. into the English crown, about 
the year of our Lord 1400, he was by that 
prince banished his country, and his goods 
and lands were confiscated." He m. Marga- 
ret, daughter and heir of Robert Holloway, 
and died possessed of Cockiugton and

cipally "resided. His son and successor, 

Sir Robert Cary, knt.* wedded, first, 
Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Philip Courtenay, 
of Powderham, in Devonshire, which lady 
dying without issue, he m. secondly, Jane, 
daughter of Sir William Hanchford, knt. 
and widow of — Wadham. A proof of the 
great prowess in arms of this gallant knighl 
is recorded in the following exploit: " In 
the beginning of the reign of Henry V. a 
certain knight-errand of Arragon, having 
passed through divers countries, and per- 
formed many feats of arms, to his high com- 
mendation, arrived here in England, where 
he challenged any man of his rank and 
quality to make tryal of his valor and skill 
in arms. This challenge Sir Robert Cary

self and his fortune to the

prince. Having thus con- 
sumed a considerable estate 
when the royal cause fell, 
he was forced to fly his na- 
tive land. The house of 
Stuart was not, however, 
unmindful of such disinte- 
rested devotion, for when 
the Duke of Ormond, in a 
succeeding reign, appeared 
off Torr Bay, he assured 
the family, on the part of 
his royal master, The Che- 
valier, of that prince's 
recognition of their great 
services, and of his wish to 
grant them high honors, and 
honorable indemnification, 
in pledge of which he had 
sent them his father, King 
James the Second's picture,

Henry Davers, whom lie sent express to the

George Cary, treasurer at wars, as the fittest 
person to succeed him in that high and ho- 
nourable place. Sir George Carj took up 
liis honourable sword in a stormy tempestu- 
ous time, when that kingdom was Strang* Iv 
actuated with the spirit of rebellion, which 
occasioned him much trouble during the 
little space he held it. Sir George did not 
continue in this government much more than 
a year, and then Sir \rihur Chichester, w ith 
hetter fortune, succeeded him therein. Not 
long alt< r this Sir George Cary returned 
into England, and retired to his seat at 
Cockington, where, being grown somewhat 
aged, he resolved to live the residue of his 
days to God and himself; and knowing how 
pleasing a sacrifice to Cod charitj and good 
deeds are, he purposed to do something for 
the poor, and accordingly he set about 
building of seven alms-houses for their use 
and comfort."

of this gentleman appeared in the Exeter 
News. " \bout the year L625, Mr. Cary 

received the honour of knig hthood in Ire* 
land, and shortly after established himself 
at Stanlor Barton, within Marldon Parish. 
Here he soon became noted for absenting 
himself from the Protestant Church. De- 
nounced for refusing to join in the Common 
Prayer of the Church of England, he was 
convicted on the 16th March, 1629, of being 
a Popish recusant: still he contrived to

At last, a writ was issued from the Crowu 
Office, and directed to John Davie, esq. 
high sheriff of Devonshire, to proceed 
against him. An inquisition was accord- 
ingly held, in the parish of St. Thomas, near 
Exeti r, on 1st October, 1630; and the high 
sheriff's return certifies, that Sir Edward 
Cary was then seised of the manors of St. 
Mary Church, Coffinswell, Northlewe, Ash- 
water, Bradford, Abbotesham, Stockley als

Instowe and Bradwortby, 120 acres at 
Westweeke and Bondehouse, within the 
parishes of Lamerton and Broadwoodwiger; 
and a third part of a cottage in Bedyford.

seize, ami enjoy all the goods and chattels, 
and two parts of the recited lands, tene- 
ments, and hereditaments; but by letters 
patent under the great seal, bearing date 
2lth June, 1634, and enrolled in the Pipe 
Office, 20th October, in the same year. King 
Charlks I. was pleased to release and par- 
don all the arrears to the said Sir Edward 
Cary, bis heirs, executors, and admini- 
strators. At the same time his Majesty 
granted the above-mentioned estates to 
Thomas Risden and Christopher Maynard, 
gentlemen, to hold the same from Lady 
Day, 1632, during the complete term of 41 
years, by the yearly rent to the crown of

Michaelmas, in even portions. These les- 
sees, however, were fully empowend and

sons for his own use and benefit, notwith- 
standing the statute, muio tertio Jacobi I.

crease of maintenance of William Randall,

while, Sir Edward, in the true spirit of a 
person devoted to his religion, gloried in 
the persecution, and took joyfully the spoil- 
ing of his goods, knowing that he had in 
heaven a better and enduring substance. 
He would not accept deliverance, in order 
that he might obtain a better resurrection.

BLACKER, WILLIAM, esq. of Carrickblacker, in the county of Armagh, M.A.

1780, vi. in 1810, Anne, eldest daughter of Sir Andrew Ferguson, hart. M.P. for 
Londonderry. Col. Blacker was appointed Vice Treasurer of Ireland in January, 
1817, and held office until 1829, when he resigned. He succeeded his father in 
1 826. 

Ilt'ncagc 

men or Danes, who settled at Dublin in the 
beginning of the tenth century. He was 
the son of Godfred, and the grandson of 
Imar. Succeeding his brother Amlave in 
938, he led back the Danes to Dublin, from 
whence they had been driven. In 940, he 
plundered Clonmacnoise and Kildare, and 
the next year he slew with his own axe, on 
the 26th March, in a pitched battle on the 
banks of the Bann, Mairchertach, King of 
Ailech, called the Hector or bravest of his 
time, and the day after he marched against 
and sacked the city of Armagh. It is a 
singular fact that his descendants have for 
many generations possessed the site of this 
victory ; the traditions of the country, the 
remains of an ancient encampment, and the 
discovery of both Danish and Irish weapons 
This family derives its name and descent (some of which are now in the possession of 
from Blacak, king or chief of the North- Colonel Blacker), strongly corroborate the 




BLACKER, OF CARRICK BLACKER.

testimony of historians, in this particular. 
In 943, Blacar Mas driven from Dublin by 
a successful attack of the Irish, and he fell 
in 946 near that city, with 1600 of his peo- 
ple, vanquished by Congalach, King of Ire- 
land, and was succeeded by his son, Sitric 
Mac Blacar. By some authors he is called 
Blaccard, and it is worthy of observation, 
that the name is still frequently pronounced 
by the lower classes of the people Blac- 
kard. See Harris Ware, vol. i. p. 48. 
Stewart's History of Armagh, p. 160. &c. 

Captain Valentine Blacker, of Carrick,

as he is described in old records, was born

Captain Blacker purchased the manor of 
Carrovvbrack, with courts leet, &c. from An- 
thony Cope, esq. of Loughgall,22nd August, 
1660. This manor is commonly known by 
the name of Carrickblacker. During Cap- 
tain Blacker's lifetime, and principally by 
his means, the old church of Sego, now in 
ruins, was built. He died 17th August, 

1677, and was interred in Sego Church. 
His only son and successor, 

Major George Blacker, of Carrick and 
Ballynaghie, both in the county of Armagh,

obliged by James II. to proceed to London- 
derry for the purpose of demanding the sur- 
render of that city ; but remaining firm to 
the cause of William, his name, together with 
that of his son, William Blacker, gent, ap- 
peared in the act of attainder of that day. 
Mrs. Rose Blacker died 4th February, 1689; 
the precise time of Major Blacker's demise 
is uncertain, but it must have been shortly 
after: both were buried in Sego church. 
Major Blacker was s. by his eldest son, 

William Blacker, esq. of Carrick and 
Ballytroan, who built, in 1692, as appears 
from a date cut on a stone in the wall, the 
present manor house of Carrickblacker.

Elizabeth, daughter of the Hon. Robert 
Stewart, of Irry and Stewart Hall, in the

Albany, and by her (who died in January, 

1678, and was buried at Ballyclog), he had 
an only son, 

Stewart, his heir.

magh, who m. 29th April, 1734, Mary,

Among the sixty-one manors in the hun- 
dred of Amounderness, in the county of 
Lancaster, enumerated in Domesday-book, 
which were then held by Roger de Poictore, 
but which he subsequently forfeiting to the 
crown, were afterwards bestowed upon 
Herveus, grandfather of Theobard Walter, 
Lord of Amounderness, and first hereditary 
butler of Ireland, A.D. 1172, are Clistuu, 
(now Clifton, about five miles from Pres- 
ton) Westbie, Saluwie, Plumpton, which for 
many centuries have been the inheritance 
of the Cliftons, of Clifton. The precise 
period when the first ancestor of Clifton 
seated himself at Clifton, cannot be ascer- 
tained. The most probable conjecture is, 
that either Roger de Poictore, or Herveus, 
the great grantees of the crown, bestowed 
part of their vast possessions upon their 
officers and followers, to be holden of them 
or of their superior lords. One of these 
ofhYi rs may reasonably be presumed to 
have seated himself at Clifton, and in con- 
formity to the almost invariable practice 
of those times acquired his patronymic 
of Clifton, from the place of his residence. 
The first person whose name occurs on au- 
thentic record is 

William de Clifton, who held ten caru- 
cates of land in the hundred of Amounder- 
ness, in the 42nd Henry III. A.D. 1257. 
He was one of the collectors of the aids for 
the county of Lancaster, and was succeeded 
by his son, 

Gilbert de Clifton, who during part of 
the reigns of Henry III. and Edward I. 
executed the office of Seneschal to Henry 
de Lacy, Earl of Lincoln, Lord of Clitheroe 
and Blackburnshire, &c. ; he served the 
office of sheriff of Lancashire in the years 
1278, 1286, 1287, 1289, and died 17th Ed- 
ward II. A.D. 1323, possessed of the manors 
of Clifton and Westby, lands in More Ham- 
let, Skales, Filde Plumpton, Magna Filde, 
Plumpton Parva, and Gosenargh, (Inq. 
P.M.) He had issue, 

William, his successor. 

Thomas. 

Henry. 

John. 
The eldest son, 

Sir William de Clifton, in Septem- 
ber, 4th Edward III. A.D. 1329, settled 
the manor of Salwyk on his son William, 
and Margaret, his wife, the daughter of Sir 
Robert Shireburn, of Stonyhurst, in the 
county of Lancaster. This gentleman was 
elected knight of the shire in September, 
1302, jointly with Gilbert de Singleton, and 



again in 1304, with William de Banastre. 
By his wife Elen, he was father of his suc- 
cessor, 

Sir William de Clifton, knt. who in 
September, 4th Edward III. A.D. 1329, 
married Margaret, daughter of Sir Robert 
Shireburn, knt. By deed of 21st Septem- 
ber, 1348, he entailed the manors of Clifton 
and Westby upon his issue male. On the 
25th December, 1354, he settled the manor 
of Goosnargh upon his son Nicholas, and d. 
in the 40th Edward III. A.D. 1365, leaving 
his wife, Margery, surviving, (Inq. P.M.) 
he had issue, ♦ 

Sir Nicholas de Clifton, knt. who 
served in the wars in France, and was ap- 
pointed governor of the castle of Ham, in 
Picardv, by letters patent, 14th January, 
7th Richard II. A.D. 1383. He in. Elea- 
nor, daughter of Sir Thomas West, knt. of 
Snitterfield, in the county of Warwick, and 
of Rughcombe, in the county of Wilts, 
(ancestor of the Lords de la Warr) who 
was one of the principal commanders in the 
reign of Edward III. and Richard II. 
Alice, the widow of Sir Thomas West, by 
will, dated 15th July, 1395, gave to Sir 
Nicholas de Clifton, and Eleanora, his wife, 
her daughter, and their son Thomas, £L20. 
He left issue, 

Robert de Clifton, his successor. 
Thomas de Clifton, legatee under the 
will of his grandmother, the Lady 
Alice West, of 15th July, 1395. 
The eldest son, 

Robert de Clifton, was knight of the 
shire, for the county of Lancaster, A.D. 
1382, in the 5th Richard II. and for twenty- 
five days wages received £10. and again in 
the 6th Richard II. 13b3, and for thirty- 
six days wages received £l0. 8*. He had

by the battle of Agincourt, 25th October, 
1415. (Nicolas, p. 278.) He settled lands

MAC CAUSLAND, OF STRABANE. 



59 



Hfncaac. 



A Scottish writer, Buchanan, of Aughmar, 
who published a work at Glasgow in 1723, 
states that the founder of the Mac Auslanes 
in Scotland, was one Buey Anselan, son of 
O'Kyan, King of Ulster, who (when the 
Danes, to avenge the Massacre of Limerick, 
persecuted and destroyed numbers of the 
Irish,) passed over to Scotland with a body 
of followers in or about the year 1016, and 
that the said Anselan, having given great 
assistance to Malcolm II. in his wars, was 
rewarded by that king with grants of lands 
of considerable value, and a splendid coat 
of arms. (The same monarch conferred 
about the same time similar grants upon the 
family of Keith, and several others.) Bu- 
chanan goes on to state that the territory 
so conferred was called the " lands of Bu- 
chanan ;" but that the tradition is, that this 
Buey Anselan married an heiress of the 
name of Denniestoun, and in her right ac- 
quired those lands. He establishes the 
fact, however, that Anslan took up his abode 
there as " Buey Anselan, Dominus de Bu- 
chanan," and that his successors were all 
Lairds of Buchanan. Of these feudal chiefs 
he gives a regular dynasty, beginning in 
the year 1016, with the said Anselan ; the 
second laird, in 1060, he denominates John 
Mac Auslane, and he proceeds until he 
extinguishes the line with the last of the 
lairds, John, who flourished in 1682, leaving 
an only daughter and heiress. 

Such is Buchanan's descent of the Bu- 
chanan family, the younger sons of the dif- 
ferent lairds of which founded the numerous 
branches now bearing the name. His state- 
ments, however, concerning the branch 
which always adhered to the designation of 
Mac Auslane are not so clear : the first of 
those barons to be found, he says, is one 
Malcolm, whose name was inserted as a wit- 
ness to a charter, granted by Malcolm, Earl 
of Lennox, of the lands of Luss, to John, 
Laird of Luss, about the year 1250, the sig- 
nature to that charter being " Malcolm, 
Baron Mac Auslane." The next he men- 
tions is one " Mac Beth, Baron Mac Ause- 
lane," of whom there are various traditional 
accounts as to his stature and uncommon 
strength. He lived about the year 1400. 
The third baron was Alexander, " last Baron 
Mac Auselane," whose only daughter mar- 
ried one of the Campbells, after whose death 
she sold her inheritance to Sir Humphry 
Colquhoun, of Luss, her superior. Bu- 
chanan proceeds then to observe " that the 
best account of the name of Mac Auselane 
are now settled in the counties of Tyrone 



and Derry, in the north of Ireland," and 
that those are descended from " the Baron 
Mac Auslane who went out of the parish of 
Luss, about the latter period of the reign of 
King James VI." From this baron the 
family before us claims descent. 

Baron M' Auslane, of Glenduglas, came 
over to Ireland in the latter end of King 
James I.'s reign, about the year 16U0, and 
left two sons, Andrew and John. Of the 
younger the line is now extinct. The elder, 
Andrew M'Auslane, had a son, 
Alexander M'Auslane, who served in 
the army in Ireland before the year 1649, 
as appears by the auditor-general's accounts 
of the period, wherein the said Alexander is 
stated to be entitled to a share of the for- 
feited and debenture lands, and to a share 
of money as one of the adventurers and sol- 
diers before the rebellion of 1641. He set- 
tled in the county of Tyrone, and was at 
his death possessed of the manors of Ard- 
strath, Mountfield, and others. He in. 
Genet, daughter of Edward Hall, esq. of 
New Grange, in the county of Meath, and 
had issue, 

Oliver, his successor. 
Andrew, of Ardochil, m. and left a 
son, 

Alexander, of Ardochil, who died 
in July, 1762, at the advanced 
age of one hundred years. 
Anne. 
Catherine, m. to William Colhoun, of 

Newtown Stewart. 
Margery, m. to David M'Clenahan, of 
Newtown Stewart. 

Alexander died in 1675, and was s. by his 
elder son, 

Oliver M'Ausland, esq. styled of Stra- 
bane, in the vicinity of which town he re- 
sided. This was a distinguished person, 
being no less than twelve times returned to 
the Irish parliament by the borough of 
Strabane. In the parliament of 1695 he is 
entered on the Rolls as " Oliverius Mac 
Causland, Armiger ;" and served the office 
of sheriff for the county of Tyrone in 1687. 
He appears likewise to have held some 
military commission, as we find it stated, 
under " Castlestewart," in Lodge's Peer- 
age of Ireland, that he had been em- 
ployed upon a mission of importance by 
Lord Mountjoy and Colonel Lundy. He

The following; pedigree is compiled from 
an Abstract of the Charters and Muniments 
at Standish, drawn up by the late Rev. 
Thomas West, domestic chaplain of the 
Strickland family, author of the " History 
of Furness Abbey," &t\. who deplored the 
wanton destruction of a chest containing 
a collection of ancient charters, anterior to 
the 6th of Henry III. anno 1221. In which 
year he found that 

— DE Standish, who had married Mar- 
garet, daughter and co-heir of Robert de 
Ilulton, became in her right possessor of 
the manor of Shevington, and that he was 
s. by his son, 

Thurston de Staxdish, who, on the 4th 
February, nth Henry III. anno 1221, levied 
a fine of lands in Shevington, which he in- 
herited from his mother, Margerie, daugh- 
ter and co-heir of Robert de Hulton. He 
was living in the 20th of the same reign, 
A.I). 1235-6, and had a son, 

Ralph de Staxdish, who had two sons, 
viz. 

Jordan, his successor. 
Hugh, who m. in the 34th Edward I., 
1306, Alice, daughter of Sir Richard 
Molyneux, of Sephton, knt. and was 
ancestor of Richard Standish, esq. of 
Duxbury, in Lancashire, created a 
baronet by King Charles II. in 
1676, a title which became extinct 
upon the death of Sir Frank Standish, 
the third baronet, while the estates 
passed to Frank Hall, son of An- 



thony Hall, esq. of the county of 
Durham, who thereupon assumed the 
name and arms of Standish. This 
branch is now represented by Augus- 
tus Hall Standish, of Duxbury, esq. 
The elder son, 

Jordan de Standish, who succeeded his 
father, is witness to a deed of Emma de 
Shotyl worth, 1st Edward I. A.D. 1271. He 
had issue, 

\\ u.i.iAM, his successor. 
Mabel, m. at the church door (ad Os- 
tium Ecclesiae) of Wigan, 13th Edw. 
I. anno 1285, to Henry, son of Rich- 
ard Trulshagh. 
Alice, in. to Richard de Ince. This 
lady was living in 1304. 
Jordan was s. by his son, 

William de Standish, first witness to a 
grant from Robert de Nortunleygh, dated 
2nd Edward I. A.D. 1273. In the 12th 
Edward II. 1318, he entailed half the manor 
of Standish and Longtree, with the advow- 
son of Standish, on his son, John de Stand- 
ish, and Margaret his wife. He had two 
wives, Alianor and Margaret, and was s. by 
his son, 

Johx de Standish, Lord of Standish, 
who, in the 6th of Edward III. A.D. 1332, 
confirmed to his son, William, and Mar- 
garet his wife, the eighth part of the manor 
of Shevington, with land in Standish, in fee 
tail. In the same year, he is mentioned as 
being patron of the church of Standish.

IV. Ralph (Sir), living in 1332. From 
numerous documents it appears that 
this Sir Ralph de Standish found 
means to keep his elder brother, 
Henry, out of the possession of the 
estates, for after his death, in 1384, 
Henry is proved to have entered into 
agreements with Elizabeth his wife, 
then remarried to Thomas Lampet, 
and John de Standish, his son, that 
they should deliver up to the said 
Henry the lands formerly possessed 
by the said Sir Ralph. Sir Ralph 
had married twice, first, Mary, dau. 
of — de Ince, by whom he had 

John (Sir), styled in all deeds 

" Loud John."*

Joan, in. to John Sansbraur. 
His second wife was named Eliza- 
beth, who, as already stated, re- 
married Thomas Lampet. She was 
living in the year 1406. By this 
lady he had two other sons, 
Nicholas. 

Ralph, upon whom, and his wife 
Joan, his father settled consider- 
able estates. 
Sir Ralph de Standish had a grant 
of free pardon under the privy seal, 
for all offences and breaches of the 
peace, dated 10th April, 1352. 
v. Robert, 
vi. John. 



* This Sir John de Standish is mentioned by 
Froissart and Hollingshed as being in the ser- 
vice of Richard II., and attendant in his suite at 
the memorable meeting of the king with the rebel 
Wat Tyler, in the year 1381, the manner of 
whose death is thus narrated by the former: — after 
depicting the bold propositions and insolent de- 
portment of the blacksmith, he thus proceeds: — 
" Yes truely quod the mayre, (William Wal- 
worth) thou false stynkynge knave, shalt thou 
speke thus in the presence of the kynge, my 
natural lorde ? I commytte never to ly ve with- 
out thou shalt derely ahye it, and with those 
wordes, the mayre drewe out his swerde and 
strake Tvler so great a stroke on the heed that 
he fell downe at the feet of his horse, and as he 
was fallen they envvro.ied hym all aboute, whereby 
he was not sene of his company. Then a squyer 
of the kynges alyted, called Johu Standysshe, and 
he drewe out his sworde, and put into Wat 
Tyler's belye, and so he dyed." On this occasion, 
Walworth, the lord mayor, several citizens, and 
John Standysshe, were knighted.

Standish from 33rd Edward III. to

DONKIN, OF LOWER CAVERSHAM. 

DONKIN, SIR RUFANE-SHAWE, of Lower Caversham, in the county of Oxford, 

a lieutenant-general in the army, m. first, 
Elizabeth-Frances, eldest daughter of the Very 
Rev. Dr. George Markham, dean of York, and 
grand-daughter of the late Archbishop of 
York, by whom he has an only child, 

George-David. 

He espoused, secondly, 5th May, 1832, Lady 
Anna- Maria Elliot, daughter of the late earl 
of Minto. 



This gallant officer is a knight commander of the Bath, grand cross of the Royal Hano- 
verian Guelphic Order, colonel of the 80th regiment, and representative in Parliament 
of the borough of Berwick-upon-Tweed. 




Hineage. 



General Robert Donkin, (descended from 
a respectable family, proprietors of con- 
siderable landed property in Northumber- 
land, presumed to have emigrated originally 
from Scotland, in some of the civil conflicts 
of that country, to have settled on the 
borders, and to have changed the name 
from Duncan*) was born 19th March, 1727, 
and adopting a military life, entered the 
army in 1746. In 1761 he was at the siege 
of Belleisle, under General St. Clair, and 
there became acquainted with the historian, 
Hume, from whose dictation he wrote an 
account of the expedition. He was subse- 
quently Aide-de-camp to General Fowke, 
(to whom captain, afterwards General Wolfe, 
was at the time Major of Brigade) and 
served in Flanders, during the campaigns 
of that period. He participated in the seven 
years' war as a captain, and was Aide-de- 
camp and Secretary to General Rufane, 
while he was Governor and Commander-in- 
chief at Martinique. General Donkin went 
afterwards to America, and served there 
from 1775 to 1783, at the commencement, 
as Aide-de-camp to the Commander-in-chief 
General Gage, and subsequently as Major 



* This supposition is supported by the fact, 
that the family have always used the armorial bear- 
ings of Duncan, with the addition only of three 
buckles on the chevron. 



in the 44th Regiment, and as Lieutenant 
Colonel Commandant of the Royal Garri- 
son Battalion, which latter commission he 
held until the reduction of the regiment in 
1783. During a period of the ensuing 
peace he was Aide-de-camp to the Earl of 
Granard, Commander-in-chief in Ireland. 
" General Donkin," says a writer in the 
Gentleman's Magazine, " passed a long life 
of the most unsullied honor and with the 
greatest respectability, without sickness, and 
apparently without uneasiness of any sort ; 
and although he had served in a great 
variety of climates, and had been engaged 
in nine actions, and present at seven sieges, 
he was never absent from his duty either from 
illness or wounds." This gallant soldier 
espoused Mary, daughter of the Rev. 
Emanuel Collins, of the ancient and res- 
pectable Somersetshire family of that name, 
by whom he left at his demise, an only 
surviving child, the present Lieutenant Ge- 
neral Sir Rufane Shawe Donkin, K.C.B.

* Thongh there is no known written evidence 
or record, proving the Baihbridge Holme and 
Barnes families, as being descended from the 
family of Stanhope andAislaby, yet there is strong 
presumptive evidence of such being the fact ; first, 
there is no trace of there having been anciently in 
the County Palatine, more than one family of the 
name of Pemberton, that of Stanhope and Ais- 
laby. Secondly, there is no reason whatever to 
suppose or imagine that the families of Bainhridge 
Holme and Barnes had their origin out of the 
County Palatine ; hence, it would follow, that 
they are branches of the original family of Stan- 
hope and Aislaby, and such they have always been 
considered ; and thirdly, the arms of the Bain- 
bridge Holme, Barnes, .Stanhope, and Aislaby fami- 
lies, are the same, and different from all the other 
Pembertons in England, being ar. a chev. ermines 
between three griffins' heads, couped sa. with which 
the Bainbridge Holme and Barnes families quarter 



man was Captain John Pemberton, above 
named, the younger brother of Major Pem- 
berton, son of John Pemberton, esq. of 
Aislaby, and Isabel Grey, who, with another 
son. Captain Henry Pemberton, were all 
actively engaged in the royal cause, (see 
pedigree of the Aislaby family, Surtax' 
Durham, vol. iii. p. lOoj also a note to the 

the arms of Ilindmarsh, viz. gules, in a marsh, a 
hind, lodged ppr. as descendants of Richard Pem- 
berton, of Stanhope, and Alice Hiudmarsh, the 
sixth generation in the genealogy. All which 
proves ^as far as evidence, short of written testi- 
mony, can prove) that the Bainbridge Holme and 
Barnes families are descended from the ancient 
family of Stanhope, and afterwards of Aislaby ; 
and there is every reason to suppose that John 
Pemberton, of Hilton, to whom the former family 
trace their ascendency, as shown aboye, was tho 
connecting link between the families ; being John, 
son of John, of Aislaby, and Isabel Grey, ami a 
captain in the service of Cii.uu is I. (See Surtees, 
vol. iii. p. 205.) According to Surtees, John, 
the son of John, of Aislaby. and Isabel Grey, was 
baptized 22nd November, 1618, (see the volume 
and page before cited) ; and the same author, in 
vol. li. p. 35, mentions Mr. Jolm Pemberton, of 
Hilton, as legatee in the will, dated 22nd July, 
1668, of John Hilton, esq. of Hilton, in which he 
is bequeathed a legacy of £100. and the testator 
recommends to his executors to consult him, and 
be guided by him, he being his " true friend." 
This John Pemberton, of Hilton, is known to be 
the ancestor of the families of Bainbridge Holme 
and Barnes, and it is very probable that he, and 
John, the son of John of Aislaby, and Isabel 
(J icy, were one and the same person ; for it is to 
be borne in mind, that this John Hilton, whose 
will is above referred to, was a captain in the 
service of Cn \ni.rs I., in which service his lather, 
John Hilton, was a colonel (see Surtees, vol. ii. 
p. 27) and that John Pemberton, son of John 
of Aislaby, and Isabel Grey, was also a captain in 
the same service, and most likely in the same 
regiment ; for at that time there was no standing 
army, and the regiments raised for the royal cause 
were generally county or proyincial corps, and 
officered by the gentlemen of the respective dis- 
tricts. Colonel Hinton, before mentioned, com- 
manded one of these corps ; and it is presumable, 
that his son, John, and John Pemberton, repre- 
sented in these respective pedigrees, as captains 
in the service of Charles I. held their commis- 
sions in that very corps. There are no bonds 
more likely to unite men in strict friendship than 
the same creed in politics, and military service 
performed under the same standard, and in the 
same cause. It is very probable, that the friend- 
ship to which Mr. Hilton adverts in his will, 
before cited, originated amidst the din of arms ; 
and that, at the conclusion of the civil wars, Mr. 
Hilton retired to his castle and paternal domains, 
accompanied by his friend and comrade, whom he 
appointed his steward or agent, for such it ap- 
pears, the John Pemberton named in his will was, 
and which John Pemberton, was the progenitor of 
the Bainbridge Holme and Barnes families. 

It is not at all unlikely that such an arrange-

ment should have taken place between these in- 
dividuals, the one being proprietor of vast estates, 
and the other a younger son, perhaps, without any 
provision ; and there is, hence, every reasonable 
ground to conclude, that the John Pemberton 
named in the will of the said John Hilton, and 
■who is known to be the ancestor of the Bain- 
bridge Holme and Barnes families, was John, son 
of John of Aislaby, and Isabel Grey ; a conclu- 
sion rendered stronger by comparing the date of 
the latter's baptism with that of Mr. Hilton's will, 
which would make Mr. Pemberton's age, at the 
time Mr. Hilton made his will, exactly fifty years. 
There is no doubt hut the John Pemberton buried 
at Monkwearmouth (see Surtees, vol. i. p. 237") 
was the before mentioned John, of Hilton, but the 
registers of the parish of Monkwearmouth having 
been destroyed by fire, all parochial information 
concerning the family has been lost.

Lineage. 



The Robertsons of Kindeace branched 
oft' about the year 1544, from the Robert- 
sons of Inches, in the county of Inverness, 
descended in a direct line from Robertson, 
of Strowan, in Perthshire, a family which 
derived its origin from the powerful Mac- 
donalds, Lords of the Isles. As far back 
as the reign of Alexander III. of Scotland, 
Duncan, the then chief, was a man of note 
and influence, and the family has ever since 
maintained the highest degree of respecta- 
bility. In 1451, James II. gave to the 
Robertsons a charter, dated the 15th Au- 
gust, granting certain lands in Perthshire, 
and an addition to the armorial ensigns of 
the family, viz. " for crest, a dexter hand 
supporting an imperial crown, with the 
motto, ' Virtutis gloria merces,' and below, 
a savage in chains," in consideration of 
having rendered essential service to the 
crown, after the murder of James I. by 
apprehending Walter, Earl of Athol, to 
whom the regicides had fled, and Robert 
Graham, one of the chief actors in that 
tragedy, within two miles of Blair Castle, 
at a little rivulet, called " Graham's Burn," 
to this day. 

John Robertson, of Inches, about the 
end of the 16th century, married, for his 
second wife, a daughter of Fearn, of Pit- 
cullin, and had a son, 

William Robertson, who obtained from 
his father, in patrimony, several lands about 
Inverness. This gentleman having acquired 
vast riches, by commerce, purchased exten- 
sive estates, viz. in 1615, the lands of Ork- 
ney, in the shire of Nairn ; and in 1639, the 
lands of Kindeace, &c. in Ross-shire, which 
last became the chief title of the family. 
In 1631 he had obtained a charter under 
the great seal " Willielmo Robertson, 
burgen de Invernys, Villa? et terrarum de 
Easter Kindeace, &c. &e." dated 19th March, 
of that year. Mr. Robertson espoused Els-

their father's property ; the elder son 
(Morris) claiming, by the new law, the right 
of primogeniture ; and the younger (Tho- 
mas) insisting upon the gravel kind divi- 
sion, as directed by the laws of Howel Dda, 
and sanctioned by the immemorial usage 
of the ancient Britons. After considerable 
litigation, the dispute was finally referred 
to arbitration ; and by the award, Morris 
Wynn, the elder son, succeeded to the man- 
sion of Moeliwrch, with the lands attached 
thereto : Thomas ap Llewelyn, his brother,

V I^T ~~ yy Thomas-Frederick-Charles, b. 20th October, 1831. 

N© . Si Vv/v /s Louisa-Mary-Hamilton,, b. 4th July, 1829. 

This gentleman, whose patronymic is Vernon, assumed 
the additional surname and arms of Wentworth, in com- 
pliance with the testamentary injunction of his kinswoman, 
Augusta Hatfield-Kaye, wife of John Hatfield-Kaye, 
esq. of Hatfield Hall, and sister and heiress of Frederick- 
Thomas Wentworth, third Earl of Strafford. 

Utntage. 




The family of Wentworth, originally 
Winterwade, is said by genealogists to 
have derived its designation, in Saxon 
times, from the lordship of Winterwade 
(so written in Domesday Book), in the 
wapentake of Strafford and county of 
York. 

In the reign of Henry III. 

William de Wyntword, of Wyntword, 
married Emma, daughter and heir of Wil- 
liam Wodehous, of Wodehous, by whom he 
acquired that estate ; and taking up his 
abode there, the family have ever since 
been denominated "the Wentworths, of 
Wentworth-Woodhouse." The descen- 
dant in a direct line from this William and 
his wife Emma (for the intermediate gene- 
rations, see Burke's Extinct and Dormant 
Peerage), 

Thomas Wentworth, esq. of Wentworth 
Woodhouse, was high sheriff of the county 
of York, in the 25th Queen Elizabeth. 
He m. Margaret, daughter and heir of Sir 
William Gascoigne,* knt. of Gawthorpe, 
and by her acquired the manor and seat of 
Gawthorpe, Cusworth, &c. and his descend- 
ants became co-heirs to the baronies of 
Ferrers, of Wemme, and Boteler, of Wemme, 
then (and still) in abeyance. Mr. Went- 

* Mary Ferrers, younger daughter and heir 
of Sir Robert Ferrers, Lord Ferrers, of Wemme, 
espoused Ralph Nevil, a younger son of Ralph, 
Earl of Westmorland, and had a son, 

John Nevil, who wedded Elizabeth, daugh- 
ter and heir of Robert Newmarch, and left 
an only daughter and heiress, 

Joane Nevil, who espoused Sir William 
Gascoigne, and her daughter and 
heiress, 

Margaret Gascoigne, became the 
wife of Thomas Wentworth, as in 
the text.

Woodhouse. This gentleman was high- 
sheriff of the county of York, in the last 
year of Elizabeth, and was created a 
Baronet on the 29th June, 1611. He m. 
Anne, daughter and heir of Sir Robert 
Atkins, knt. of Stowell, in the county of 
Gloucester, and had, with other issue (for 
which see Burke's Extinct and Dormant 
Peerage ), 

Thomas, his successor, the celebrated 
Sir Thomas Wentworth, Earl of 
Strafford, Lord Lieutenant of Ire- 
land, who suffered decapitation on 
the 12th May, 1641. His honors 
were however restored, after the re- 
establishment of the monarchy, to his 
son, 
William Wentworth, by patent, 
as second Earl of Strafford, 
&c. and his lordship was in- 
stalled a Knight of the Garter. 
He died* without issue, in 1695, 
when the greater part of his 
estates devolv ed upon his nephew 
the Honourable Thomas Wat- 
son, son of Edward Watson, 
Earl of Rockingham, by bis sis-

and all his honors became ex-

he, my neighbour, Mr. Vernon, stands so 
high in Lord Healhfield's esteem. He has 
considerable talents and exertions ; and the 
warm and entirely voluntary praise of so 
great and good a man proves that they have 
been, at least of late years, directed to noble 
purposes." He married Margaret, daugh-

CORBET, OF YNYSYMAENGWYN. 



Hincnac. 



The family of Ynysymaengwyn owes its 
origin to Bleddyn ap Kynfyn, who was (in 
right of his mother, Angharad, daughter 
and heiress of Meredith ap Owen ap Howell 
dda,) Prince of Powys. 

In 1237, 

Osburn Fitzgerald, usually called Osher 
Wyddel by the natives of Wales, (refer to 
family of Wynne, of Peniarth, vol. i. p. 
567) came over into Wales, and was in such 
favour with Llewellyn the Great, who then 
reigned in Wales, that he made him Go- 
vernor of Harlech Castle, and gave him in 
marriage the heiress of Corsygedol, his 
ward. Their grandson, 

Llewellyn ap Cynric, wedded Nest, 
daughter and heiress of Griffith ap Adda, of 
Ynysymaengwyn and Dolgoch. From this 
period, the estates passed through many 
generations (see vol. i. p. 567), until they 
again centered in an heiress, 

Elizabeth Wynn (daughter of Humphrey 
Wynn), who espoused Sir James Pryse,* 
knt. second son of John Pryse, of Goger- 
than, one of the council of the Marches in 
Wales, descended from Gwaethvoed Fawr, 
and the issue of this marriage was an only 
daughter and heiress, 

Bridget Pryse, of Ynysymaengwyn, 
who m. first, Robert Corbet, esq. second 
son of Sir Vincent Corbet,f of Moreton 
Corbet, by Frances, his wife, heiress of 
William Humfreston, esq. of Humfreston, 
in Shropshire (which estate was settled on 
Robert Corbet), and by that gentleman (who 
died in 1644) she had a son, Vincent, her 
heir. She espoused, secondly, Sir Walter 
Lloyd, of Llanfair Clewedogau, M.P. for 
the county of Cardigan. 

Her eldest son and heir, 

Vincent Corbet, esq. of Ynysymaen- 
gwyn, was s. by his son, 

Vincent Corbet, esq. of Ynysymaen- 
gwyn, who m. Ann, daughter of Richard 
or William Vaughan, esq. of Corsygedol, 
and had four daughters, viz. 
Ann, his heiress. 

Jane, m. first, to Thomas Pryce, of 
Escairweddan, in the county of Me- 
rioneth,'and secondly, to Hugh Wynn, 
LL. D. second son of Robert Wynn, 
of Bodysgallen, in Carnarvonshire. 
Elizabeth, in. to Evan Glynn, of Glynn, 

in Montgomeryshire. 
Rachael, m. to Love Parry, of Wern 
Fawr, M.P. for Carnarvonshire. 

* Sir James Pryse died in 1642. 

t The immediate ancestor of the family of 
Corbet accompanied William the Conqueror into 
Britain, and was one of the principal persons en- 
trusted by Roger, Earl of Shrewsbury, in the 
government of his county of Salop. 



Mr.Vincent Corbet d. 6th January, 1723, aged 
seventy-two, and was s. by his eldest dau. 

Ann Corbet, of Ynysymaengwyn, b. in 
1684, who m. Athelstan Owen, esq. of Rhiw- 
saison, in the county of Montgomery, des- 
cended from Ethelysdan Glodrydd, one of 
the royal tribes of Wales, and had issue, 
Corbet Owen, who m. Margaret Pryse, 

heiress of Aberllefenny, but d. s. p. 
Richard Owen, who d. unm. six months 

after his mother. 
Elizabeth Owen, m. to the Rev. Dr. 
William Powell, of Nanteos, who d. 
in 1780. (See Powell, of Nanteos, 
vol. i. p. 230.) 
Ann Owen, who m. Pryce MAi'KicE,f 
esq. of Lloran Ucha and Penybont, 
in Denbighshire, and left issue at her 
decease, 5th October, 1767, 

I. Edward Mai'rice, who inhe- 
rited Ynysymaengwyn on the 
death of his brother, Henry- 
Arthur. 

II. Pryce Maurice, in holy orders, 
rector of Celynin and vicar of 
Towyn, in the county of Merio- 
neth, who m. Anne, daughter of 
the Rev. David Davies, rector of 
Llanlyllin, in the county of Meri- 
oneth, by Anne, his wife, heiress 
of Rugdg, in the same shire, and 
left at his demise, in 1803, aged 
fifty-eight, three sons and three 
daughters, viz. 

Edward-Davies, ) both died 
Pryce, i unmarried. 

Athelstan, who s. his uncle, 
Edward, at Y'nysymaen- 
gwyn, and is its present 
possessor. 
Anne-Susannah.

cimus Williames, esq. of 
Berthdu, county of Mont- 
gomery, and has two dans. 
Henrietta - Corbet Wil- 
liames. 
Anne-Maria Williames. 

t The family of Maurice is the oldest lineal 
male branch of the descendants of Einion Evell, 
to whom so many of the Welsh families in the 
neighbourhood of Oswestry trace their origin. 
The parishes of Llansillyn and Rhaydr, in Moch- 
rant, and still more extensive possessions in that 
district belonged to this family ; but Griffith 
Yollin de Lloran and Llangedwin had several 
sons, and he divided his estates amongst them. 
His great-grandson, Evan de Lloran, had eight 
sons, and he also further divided his property 
amongst them. What remained was partly sold 
by the late Edward Corbet, and partly left by him 
away from the legitimate family. See family of 
Edwards, of Ness Strange.

The family of Vowe is of great antiquity, 
and has possessed the manor of Hallaton, 
since the year 1401. 

John Hackluit, espoused in the begin- 
ing of the fourteenth century, Alice, daugh- 
ter and heiress of Theobald Neville, and

held of the heirs of Robert Peveril, by the 
service of threepence a year, and a suit of

Margaret Hackluit, who conveyed the 
manor of Hallaton in marriage to William 
Deixtre, servant to King Henry IV. when 
Earl of Derby. The granddaughter and 
heiress of this alliance, 

Margerie Deixter, espoused first, in

Dragoons, carried the colours at the battle 
of Minden, and, as his monumental in- 
scription in the church of Hallaton attests, 
" served his majesty with honour in that 
glorious continental war, which reflects so 
much lustre on the British arms, and which 
was terminated by the peace of Paris in 
1763." He espoused Elizabeth, eldest 
daughter of John Smalley, esq. by Eliza-

FARQUHARSON, OF IN\ KRCAULD. 

FARQUHARSON, CATHERINE, of Invercauld, in the county of Aberdeen, inhe-

lineage. . 




"The representative of this ancient family," 
saith Douglas, in the Baronage, " is the head 
or chief of the powerful and numerous clan 
Farquharson. They had large possessions 
in the Braes of Mar, (the head of Aber- 
deenshire) and the adjacent countries. They 
also, like other great highland families, bad 
their bards and senachies, who faithfully 
handed down their brave actions ; and it is 
agreed by all our historians, that they were 
a race of valiant and warlike people, steady 
in their loyalty to their king, and always 
ready to fight in defence of the liberties of 
their country." The house of Invercauld 
derives its descent from 

Shaw Mc Duff, (sprung from a younger 
son of the potent Thanes of Fife) who had 
a son called Farquhar, who settled in Mar, 



in the reign of Robert II. (1371) and was 
made bailie and chamberlain thereof: his 
sons, as was customary in that early period, 
obtaining the surname of Farquharsons, 
sons of Farquhar, founded many opulent 
and puissant houses in Scotland. The 
eldest, 

Donald Farquharson, wedded a daugh- 
ter of Robertson, of Calvine, and had an 
only son, 

Farquhar Farquharson, who espoused 
a daughter of Chisholm, of Straglash, and 
had (with junior issue, which settled in the 
braes of Angus, and founded several families 
of Farquharson) a son and successor, 

Donald Farquharson, who, in consider- 
ation of the eminent services he had ren- 
dered to the crown, obtained considerable

additions to his inheritance. He m. a daugh- 
ter of Duncan Stewart, of the family of 
Mar, and had a son and heir, 

Findla, commonly called Findla More, 
from his gigantic size and great strength, 
a man of daring courage and of a bold and 
determined character. " His descendants 
in the Highlands were called (according to 
Douglas) Clan lanla, and the head of the 
family Mack lanla, though, before this 
period, they were called in the Gaelic 
language, Clan Erachar, and most of the 
branches were called Mackerachars, and 
several of them still retain that name. In 
like manner, some of the descendants of 
Findla (settling in the low lands with the 
designation of Mack lanla) had it after- 
wards converted into the name of Findlay- 
son." Findla m. first, Beatrix, daughter of 
George Garden, of that Ilk, and had (with 
three younger sons, who all acquired estates, 
and founded, with many others, the house of 
Farquharson, of Finzean,* now represented 
by Archibald Farquharson, esq.) a son 
and heir, Robert. He espoused secondly, 
a daughter of the Baron Roy, of Kincardin 
Stewart, and had other children, seated in 
Perthshire. This gallant warrior was killed 
at Pinkie, in 1547, bearing the royal ban- 
ner, and was buried in the church yard of 
Invercauld. He was s. by his son,

hath informed me that the principal passage 
whereon the lord's enemies insisted was this ; it 
being told Lord Cromwell that one accused him 
of want of fidelity to the king. Cromwell re- 
turned in a passion, ' Were he now here I would 
strike my dagger into his heart,' meaning the 
accuser's.

again stood forward one of her most zealous and 
active defenders, and was honoured with the com- 
mand of several corps of fencible troops, raised in

O'SHEE, OF GARDENMORRES. 



O'SHEE, JOHN-POWER, esq. of Gardenmorres, in the county of Waterford, and 
of Sheestown, in the county of Kilkenny, b. 15th February, 1809, succeeded his father 
in 1827. Mr. O'Shee, who is a magistrate for the counties of Waterford and Kil- 
kenny, and deputy-lieutenant of the former, served the office of sheriff for the county 
of Waterford in 1832. 



O'SHEE, OF GARDENMORRES. 



121 



Hincactc. 




This family, of Milesian origin, derives 
from the Irish princes of Iveragh, in the 
county of Kerry, and its direct ancestor, 
prior to the English invasion, is acknow- 
ledged to have held the sceptre as King or 
Lord of Iveragh. Within the jurisdiction 
of Iveragh was situated the Island of Dair- 
hre, the estate of the O'Shees, and in an 
ancient pedigree, attested by Robert Cooke, 
Clarencieux King of Arms, in the year 1582, 

Oda, or Odancs O'Shee, chieftain of 
the Sept, about the beginning of the twelfth 
century, is styled Lord of the manors of 
Cloran-O'Shee, Clone-O'Shee, and Dran- 
gan-O'Shee, in the barony of Middlethird 
and county of Tipperary, and of the Can- 
thred of Texnane O'Shee, in the county of 
Kerry, (situated in the barony of Iveragh). 
The tenth in descent from this chief, 

Odoneus O'Shee, (whose grandfather, 
Thadeus O'Shee, had removed from Tex- 
nane O'Shee to the county of Tipperary) 
obtained denizenship for himself and his 
three brothers, William, Edmund, and John, 
on the 6th November, A.D. 1381, 15th Rich- 
ard II. This Odoneus was likewise lord of 
the manors of Cramps Castle, and Shees- 
land, near Kiltinane, in the county of Tip- 
perary. He was s. by his son, 

Robert Shee, who became heir also to 
his above mentioned uncles, William, Ed- 
mund, and John. He was father of 

Thadeus Shee, who succeeded him. This 
chief having unfortunately slain on the 6th 
December, 1433, John Butler, brother of 
the Baron of Dunboyne, and Seneschal to 
the White Earl, in the county palatine of 
Tipperary, the baron entered into Drangan, 
Shees land, and other parcels as an ericke 
after the Irish custom. His brother, Cor- 
macke O'Shee, was about the same period 
confirmed in the lordship of Cloran, by 
Thomas Butler, prior of Kilmainham, which 
estate however came again into the posses- 
sion of the descendants of Thadeus. He 
m. Margaret, daughter and heir of William 



Britten, chieftain of the name, and had four 
sons, viz. 

i. Robert, his heir, 
ii. John. 

in. Arthur, who m. Issmay Cadell, 
heiress of Morestown and Cadells 
town, in the county of Tipperary, and 
of Elstown and Kilkeraine, in the 
county of Kilkenny, and had issue, 
iv. William. 
Thadeus was s. by his eldest son, 

Robert Shee, who wedded Ellen, daugh- 
ter of Birmingham, called by the Irish, 
Mac Fheoris, and was s . by his son, 

Richard Shee, who was sent to school to 
Waterford, by his grandmother, (a daugh- 
ter of the Earl of Desmond) lest he should 
be murdered by the Baron of Dunboyne, 
and he there m. Rose, daughter of — Archer. 
By this lady he had two sons and four daugh- 
ters, of whom, Catherine, m. William Bushe, 
of Waterford. The elder son, 

Robert Shee, or Shet/i, was the first of 
the family that settled in Kilkenny. He es- 
poused Catherine, daughter of — Sherlocke, 
of Kilkenny, and had issue, 
i. Richard, his heir, 
n. Joan, m. to John Mothel. 
in. Beale, m. to Francis Pembroke, 
iv. Mary, m. to James Fforstall. 
V. Alson, »i. to John Donnell. 
This Robert was slain on the 6th August, 
1500, at Mealiffe, in the county of Tip- 
perary, where he commanded a hundred 
men of Kilkenny, under Sir Pierce Butler, 
against O'Brien, and was a. by his son, 

Richard Shee, of Kilkenny, who m. 
Joan, daughter and heir of Elias Archer, of 
Ross, by his wife, Marion, daughter and 
heir of — Delahyde, of the same place, 
whose lands he inherited, and had seven 
sons and three daughters, viz. 
I. Robert, his successor. 
ii. Thomas, who m. Beale Butler, and 

had two sons and two daughters. 
III. William, m. Margaret Walshe, 
and had seven sons and four daugh- 
ters, of whom Pierce Shee, the 
eldest son, was recorder of Kilkenny. 
William, (the father) died in 1584, 
and is buried in St. Mary's choir, in 
Kilkenny, under a flat tomb-stone, 
bearing the following inscription : 

" Hie jacet Wilhelmus Shee, quondam 

Burgensis vill Kilkenne 

qui obiit 1584 .... uxor ejus 

Margareta Walshe 

iv. Nicholas, m. Beale Walshe, and 

had issue.

she had issue, 
vn. Lettice, m. to John Sweetman, 

esq. of Callan. 
viii. Anstice, this lady was m. thrice. 
He was s. at his decease by his eldest* son, 
Robert Shee, esq. who was a justice of the 
peace for the county of Kilkenny, and pur- 
chased lands in the city and county thereof. 
He wedded Margaret, daughter of — Rothe, 
esq. and had issue, 

i. Richard (Sir), his heir. 
II. Elias, of Kilkenny, who m. Marga- 
ret, daughter of — Archer, esq. and 
dying 27th July, 1613, was buried in 
St. Mary's choir, where a monument 
was erected to his memory, covered 
with curious inscriptions in Latin 
verse. He is described by Holing- 
shed, " as Elias Sheth, borne in Kil- 
kennye, sometime scholer of Oxford, 
a gentleman of a passing wit, a pleas- 
ant conceited companion, full of mirth 
without gall. He wrote in English 
divers sonnets." The following epi- 
taph appears in Roman capitals on a 
tablet over the monument : 

" Hei.ioj Shee Armigero multis na- 
ture dotibus ac niultiplicis doctrine 
ornamentis conspicuo conjugi suavis- 
simo charissima uxor Margareta Archer 
maesta posuit Obiit Die 27 Julii A. D. 
1613."

vn. Joan, in. first, to Luke Black, esq. 

and secondly to — Rothe, esq. of

VIII. Onor, m. to John Archer, esq. and 
had issue. She died 24th August, 
1616, and lies interred under a mural 
monument in St. Mary's Church, 
Kilkenny, on which are the arms of 
Archer, impaling those of Shee, with 
a Latin inscription underneath. 

IX. Ellen, m. to Richard Archdeacon, 
esq. and had issue. 

* Under Sir Martin Shee, this Robert, the 
eldest son, is erroneously called the youngest. 

i In vol. i. p. 40.i, this Elias Shee is represented 
as dying in 1688, after forfeiting the estate of 
Clanmore, — evidently in error. Elias who lost 
Clanmore, was probably the grandson of this 
Elias. By inquisition, held 21st August, 1619, 
it appears that Elias Shee was seised of the 
castles of'Clanmorne, Shullamrath, and Follingrath, 
within the liberties of Kilkenny. His son and heir, 
George Shee, was twenty-three years of age, and 
married at his father's death. Sir George Shee, 
bart. is the head of this branch of the family only.

name, which institution lie endowed, by his 
will dated 18th December, 1603. with the 
tythes of Butlerswood and Kilmocahill, di- 
recting his son and heir, under pain of his 
curse and promise of his blessing, to procure 
a charter of incorporation of the poor of 
the hospital, under the title of " Fratres et 
Sorores Ilospitalis Jesu Christi in Kil- 
kennia." He in. first, Margaret, daughter

alderman of Dublin, but by her, who sur- 
vived him, he left no issue. Sir Richard

HALLIDAY, OF WILTS AND SOMERSETSHIRE. 

HALLIDAY, SIMON-WELMAN, esq. one of the lords of the manor of Camber- 
well-Buckingham, in the county of Surrey, now residing at Brompton Hall, in Mid- 
dlesex, is representative of the Somersetshire branch since 1805, and head of the 
family since 1823. 

Utage. . 

This Vale was then thickly wooded, and 
the deer and the wild'boar could be chased 
from " the Devil's Punch Bowl to Annan 
Water Foot," without once emerging 
from the Forest. With the settlement 
of this people on the borders of the two 
kingdoms, began that harassing and petty 
warfare which may be said to have con- 
tinued until long after the Union ; and tra- 
dition affirms, that " a holyday" became the 
warcry or sloggan of the chief and people 
o£ Annandale, whenever they made a 
" raide" or foray upon the Saxon border — 
for they accounted every day holy, that 
was spent in ravaging the enemy's country. 
The wars that in aftertimes so fiercely 
raged between two neighbouring and rival 
nations, thus arose from the hatred that 
existed and long continued to exist between 
two distinct people, the Saxon and the Gaul, 
the oppressor and the oppressed. The Clan, 
when provisions became scarce were sum- 
moned to make a holyday, and in proof of 
the probability of this origin of the name, 
the eminence where the " Annandale Moss 
Troopers," were accustomed to assemble 
when a foray into England was ordered, 
still retains the designation of the Halliday 
Hill. Whether this derivation be correct 
or not, there are now no means of ascer- 
taining—but the evidence is complete, that 
the chieftain, who first assumed the sur- 
name, had his castle or strong tower, near 
the source of the River Annan, and about 
two or three miles above the present flou- 
rishing village of Moffat, so celebrated for 
its mineral waters ; at the Corehead the 
ruins of this castle may still be traced, and 
there we may suppose that generation after 
generation had lived in Celtic greatness as 
chiefs, and had hunted the wolf and the wild 
boar in the woody vale, when the more 
profitable pursuit of Saxon beeves was not 
necessary or advisable. 

On the accession of David, the first of 
his name, to the throne of Scotland, a new 
era may be said to have arisen ; not only 
new laws but a new race of people were 
introduced into the country. David had 
resided, during the greater part of his bro- 
ther's reign, at the court of the Norman 
conquerors of England, and had married 
the heiress of Waltheof Earl of Hunting- 



This family, which is of remote antiquity, 
bears one of the earliest British surnames 
upon record ; familiar now for more than 
six hundred years on either side of the 
Tweed, but originally adopted, according 
to tradition, as well as authenticated written 
evidence, on the Scottish Border. The peo- 
ple, whom it came to designate, are repre- 
sented, by the same testimony, as a portion 
of the Ulster Criithene, which about the 
beginning of the ninth century, crossed the 
Irish Channel, and reconquered from the 
Saxons the greater part of their original 
possessions in the south of Scotland. These 
lands known in our time as the district of 
Galloway, Dumfriesshire, and part of 
Peebles, formed, in conjunction with La- 
nark and Renfrew, the Celtic kingdom of 
Strath Cluyd, where in some of the most 
remote districts, until very recently, the 
Gaelic or Irish language was constantly 
spoken. The Cruithene, so called from the 
Celtic word, " Cruiteneach," to paint, had 
been driven into Ireland by the Roman 
Conquerors and had taken possession of the 
province of Ulster ; but becoming in pro- 
cess of time too numerous for their new 
settlement, adventured to regain from the 
Saxons, a portion of that territory from 
which the Romans had expelled their fore- 
fathers. Victorious, — the conquered coun- 
try, was divided amongst their leaders : 
arid the Vale or Dale of the River Annan, 
the portion of one of these chieftains, 
was taken possession of by his followers.

HALLIDAY, OF WILTS AND SOMERSETSHIRE. 



don and Northumberland, to which titles 
he was in consequence advanced by his royal 
brother-in-law in 1130. Hence, in habits 
and feelings, he became a Norman himself, 
and finding his Scottish crown surrounded 
with many thorns, and the Celtic tribes 
more ready to fight for independence, 
than to submit to control, he prevailed 
upon as many as he could of the younger 
sons of the Norman barons to accom- 
pany him into Scotland. In this David 
was actuated by more than one motive, for 
while they could not fail to enliven his court, 
and by their better breeding and greater 
polish tend to soften and civilize the man- 
ners of the Scotch, they would, at the same 
time, form a very efficient body guard and 
enable him to raise and dicipline an army 
with more advantage than could be done 
by the natives. Amongst the many young 
men of noble birtb but scant fortune, that 
accompanied King David, was Robkrt de 
Brlis, a son of the Baron of Cleveland, 
who as a reward for thus exiling himself 
from "merry England," received a grant 
of the Valla de Annan, to be held of the 
Kings of Scotland, " per jus Gladii" — and 
there he erected and fortified a castle. The 
Border Celts were a warlike, though at all 
times an undisciplined people, and subdued 
and heart-broken in their own territory, it 
may naturally be supposed they sought for 
adventure on some other shore. The Nor- 
man yoke must have been felt most acutely — 
and certain it is, that almost every man able 
to bear arms within the Stewartry (as it 
was now called) of Annandale, joined the 
standard of the Earl of Huntingdon, and 
accompanied the lion-hearted Richard to 
the Holy Land.* But even previous to this 
levy " en masse," many of the Halliday 
clan had returned to Ireland, or fled into 
the wilds of Galloway, where their valour 
long kept the Norman at bay. It is not 
required to follow the history of the legions 
which King Richard led to Palestine — 
while the illfated monarch was in capti- 
vity, the Earl of Huntingdon returned to 
England with all that remained of the British 
force — and such was the jealousy of the 
two factions, or rather the faction of Prince 
John, which then disturbed the peace of 
the kingdom, that this little band of worn 
out, but distinguished warriors, was dis- 
charged and dispersed over the kingdom. 
Among these veterans, there must have been 
seen many of the name of Halliday, for 
we very soon afterwards find the surname 
common in several counties in England, 
holding freehold lands of the sovereign, as 
also vassals of superior lords. 

* Of the five thousand men sent by William 
of Scotland to join King Richard, one thousand 
were from Annandale, and almost all Hallidays. 



In 1240, a Walter Halliday stands in 
the Exchequer Rolls, as lord of a manor, 
called St. Botolph, in Kent, and a William 
Halliday is mentioned in 1278, as pos- 
sessing Trivil, in the same county. In 
1298, Thomas Halliday, and in 1305, John 
Halliday represented the town of Bedford 
in parliament. About this period also a 
Gerard Halliday, and four others of his 
name are mentioned as land holders in the 
hundred of Lackford, county of Suffolk. 
Others stand recorded as proprietors of the 
parishes of " Wardeboys," or " Warboys," 
and Caldicote, in Huntingdonshire ; and of 
Bampton-Pogvs, Oxfordshire. 
In 1338, 

John Halliday, of Pontefract. was sum- 
moned to attend his sovereign, Edward III. 
with twenty bowmen, and men at arms (to 
be paid by him) in the wars against the 
Scots. In 1435, 

Thomas HALLIDAY, of Pontefract, com- 
manded five hundred archers in Sir John 
Shirley's division of the English army, at 
the battle of AGINCOURT. In 1470, 

WALTER Halliday, called " The Min- 
strel," became master of the revels to Ed- 
\\ \rd IV., and acquired lands in the pa- 
rish of Rodborough, in the county of Glou- 
cester, which are still held by his descen- 
dants. He was father of 

Henry Halliday, styled of Minchin 
Hampton, who m. a daughter of — Payne, 
of Payne's Court, and left four sons, viz. 
i. Henry, his successor. 
II. Edward, of Rodborough, in Glou- 
cestershire, m. and had, with four 
other sons and one daughter, Rose,

William, of Rodborough, a person 
of considerable note, who wedded 
Sarah, aunt of Sir John Brydges, 
created in 1554, Baron Chandos, 
of Sudlev,and was s. by his son, 
Sir Leonard Halliday, who, 
at his father's decease, was 
sent to London, where he 
rose to be sheriff, and, in 
1605, was lord mayor, and 
knighted by King James I. 
Stowe, in his annals, states 
how Sir Leonard converted 
the Moorfields, then " a per- 
fect lystal," in the vicinity 
of London, into the beauti- 
ful and fashionable gardens 
which they were in after- 
times, and so little agreeable 
was this labour to the men 
employed, that they adopted 
a term for all hard toil, by 
calling it like the improve- 
ments of Moorfields, " Holy- 
dag-work." Sir Leonard m.

It is now ascertained by documentary 
evidence the most authentic that, although 
the last Laird of Corehead, undoubtedly the 
chief of all who bore the name of Halliday, 
and the lineal representative of the first 
Celtic warrior who assumed it, left no heir 
male of his body, and that the direct Scot- 
tish line failed between the years 1400 and 
1450, yet that Walter, " the minstrel," 
(master of the revels to Edward IV.) was a 
younger son of the Annandale Chieftain. 

William Halliday, third son of Henry 
Halliday, of Minchin Hampton, and grand- 
son of Walter, the minstrel, was presumed

poraneously with William Halliday, of Rod- 
borough. He went to Holland, and there 
married — Hay, heiress of Tolyboll, in the 
county of Fife, only daughter of Colonel 
Hay, of the service of the states general, 
and was s. by his son, 

John Halliday, educated in Holland, 
who inherited at the decease of his mother 
the lands of Tolyboll, and established him- 
self there. It would appear that this John 
Halliday was a person of some distinction, 
for he was in great favor with King James 
VI. who during the progress of the court 
from Stirling to Falkland, in his youthful 
days, often slept at Tulliebole House, mid- 
way on the journey, and is said to have 
conferred the honor of Knighthood upon 
the Laird.* His second son, 

William Halliday, who became provost 
of Dumfries, and one of its representatives 
in parliament, had the honor of entertaining 
the same monarch, at his house in that 
Royal Burgh, after the king's accession to 



The estate of Tulliebole remained in the 
descendants of the eldest son of this Sir John 
Halliday, until 1722, when Catherine, daughter 
of John Halliday, wedded the Rev. Archibald

represented by her great grandson, the present 
Sir James Wellwood Moncrieft', bart. of Tullie- 
bole.

visit to Scotland. The provost died at a 
good old age, leaving a numerous progeny 
by his wife, a daughter of Gabriel Johnston, 
a merchant and burgess of Dumfries. One 
of his sons, 

Thomas Halliday, came into England, 
but returned to Scotland, anno 1679, in the 
army of the Duke of Monmouth, which had 
been raised to quell the rebellion of the 
Covenanters ; finding however that all his 
kinsmen were on the side of Presbytery, 
he left the king's service. He m" Miss

LEITII-HAY, OF RANNES AND LEITH HALL.

Htneage. 



The surname of Leith is deemed of great 
antiquity in Scotland, and those who bore 
it held, in a remote era, vast possessions, 
including the barony of Restalrig, and others 
in the shire of Mid Lothian and territory of 
Leith, whence it is presumed the name was 
ass.uued. The immediate ancestor of the 
family before us, 

William Leith, of Barnis, living in the 
time of David Bruce, and said to have been 
the male representative of the Leiths, of 
Edingarrock, was provost of Aberdeen in 
1350, and proprietor of the lands of Capring- 
ton, in Aberdeenshire. He in. a daughter 
of Donald, twelfth Earl of Marr, and had 
two sons, 

Laurence, his heir. 

John, ambassador to the court of Eng- 
land in 1412, 1413, and 1416, and one 
of the commissioners to adjust the 
amount of ransom for the release of 
James I. 
William Leith died some time in the reign 
of Robert II. and was buried in the church 
of Aberdeen, where his monument, name, 
and arms are still extant. He was s. by his 
elder son, 

Lawrence Leith, of Barnis, in the county 
of Aberdeen, and provost of Aberdeen in 
1401, 1403, and 1411 ; to which town he pre- 
sented their largest bell, on which his name 
is still visible. He died in the time of 
James II. and was s. by his son, 

Norman Leith, who in. Elizabeth, dan. 

of William Leslie, fourth Baron of Balqu- 

hain, by Agnes Irvine, his wife, daughter of 

the Baron of Drum, and had three sons, viz. 

Henry, his heir.

John, ancestor of the Leiths, of Over- 
hall. 
Norman d. temp. James III, and was s. by 
his son, 

Henry Leith, of Barnis, who had also 
three sons, 

George, his heir. 
William, successor to his brother. 
Patrick, progenitor of the Leiths, of 
Harthill. 
And dying before the year 1479, was s. by 
his eldest son, 

George Leith, esq. who possessed many 
other lands besides those of Barnis, who 
wedded and had two daughters, viz. 

Elizabeth, m. to John Forbes, of Towie. 
Janet, m. first, to Alexander Seton, of 
Meldrum, and secondly, to Sir Alex- 
ander Gordon, of Abergeldie. From 
the second marriage lineally descends 



the present William Gordon, esq 
of Haffield (see that family). 
Between his two daughters, George Leith, 
at his decease, in 1505, divided the lands 
of Barnis, &c, but the representation of the 
family devolved upon his brother, 

William Leith, esq. of Edingarrock, 
which estate he had acquired by charter 
from George Leslie, of Leslie, dated on the 
last day of January, 1499. He m. a daugh- 
ter of Gordon, of Strathdon, and was s. by 
his elder son, 

Patrick Leith, esq. of Edingarrock, who 
died without issue, and was succeeded by his 
brother, 

George Leith, esq. of Edingarrock, who, 
in 1550, was served and returned heir male 
to his uncle, George Leith, of Barnis, before 
John Leslie, of Balquhain, sheriff of Aber- 
deen, and an inquest composed of fifteen of 
the leading gentlemen in the county. He 
died at an advanced age, about the close of 
Queen Mary's reign, and was succeeded by 
his son, 

Patrick Leith, esq. who during the life- 
time of his father was designed of Liklie- 
head. He espoused Jean, second daughter 
of William Leslie, seventh Baron of Balqu- 
hain, by Elizabeth, his wife, daughter of 
Sir Walter Ogilvie, of Boyne, and had

Laird of Finrassie. 

Margaret, m. to Stephen Leslie, fourth 
Laird of Warthill. 
This Patrick acquired, in his father's time, 
the lands of Kirkton de Rain from his bro- 
ther-in-law, John Leslie, of Balquhain, on 
whose resignation he got a charter from the 
Archdean of Aberdeen, dated 13th August, 
1561, to which Patrick Leith, of Harthill, is 
a subscribing witness. He died in the end 
of the reign of James VI. and was s. by his 
eldest son, 

Patrick Leith, esq. of Edingarrock, who 
sold that estate and the lands of Likliehead 
to John Forbes, of Leslie. He was after- 
wards, anno 1629, enfeoffed in the lands of 
Innogathill, upon a precept of clare con- 
stat from George, Marquess of Huntly, as 
heir to William Leith, of Edingarrock, his 
great grandfather. Dying s. p. he was s.

Sir William Copley, knt. whose will 
bears date in the first year of Queen Mary. 
He m. first, temp. Henry VIII. Dorothy, 
daughter and co-heir of Sir William Fitz- 
william, of Sprotborough,* by whom he ac- 
quired that estate, and had a son, 

* Sprotborough came to the Fitzwilliams (an- 
cestors of Earl Fitzwilliam) by the marriage, soon 
after the conquest, of Sir William Fitzwilliam, knt. 
with Eleanor, daughter and heiress of Sir John 
Elmley, of Elmley and Sprotborough.

ceeding to Sprot- 
borough, on the 
demise of his kins- 
man, Lionel Cop- 
ley, esq. in 1766, to 
whose father Sir 
Godfrey bequeath- 
ed that estate, as- 
sumed, by act of 
parliament, the sur- 
name of Copley 
only, and was cre- 
ated a baronet in 
1778. (Refer to 
Burke's Peerage 
and Baronetage.)

Sprotborough, in the county of York, volun-

* Some of the Copley family (says Hunter, in 
his History of Doncaster), like their relations, the 
Bosviles of Gunthwaite, and the Lord Brooke, 
were distinguished in the service of the parliament 
during the civil wars. The little banner of one of 
them (for each of the officers of the parliament army 
had his pennon, like those which had been seen a 
century before in the tournament), displayed an 
arm and hand grasping a scymitar, the hand of 
which was the cross moline, with the motto, " For 
Reformation ;" while another displayed a knighi 
on his charger, caparisoned, with the motto, 
" Nay, but as a captain of the host of the Lord am 
I come."

of the peace for the West Riding. This 
gentleman m. Jane, only daughter and

* This gentleman, who enjoyed considerable li- 
terary reputation, is thus spoken of by the Rev. 
Joseph Hunter, in his History of South Yorkshire. 
" Skellow Grange will be remembered as the house 
in which Mr. Higgins followed those trains of 
thought which led to the production of Ins work, 
entitled ' Celtic Druids,' and of a still more pro- 
found work, now nearly completed, to which he 
purposes to give the title of ' Anacalypsis, or an 
attempt to draw aside the Saitic Veil of Isis.' In 
both of these works he descends into the very 
depths of antiquity, the times long before the com- 
mencement of written history, and when the only 
traces of human existence are certain rude and 
mighty works, gigantic pillars, wide circles, edi- 
fices uncemented, and, more elaborate than the rest, 
the Pyramids. In the ' Celtic Druids' we have a 
most valuable collection of prints, exhibiting many 
of their remains ; and we have also the part of his 
great system, in which the British nation is more 
particularly interested, for he regards the Druids, 
and our Druidical system, as a fragment of a mighty 
sovereignty of priests, and as a relic of that state 
of high cultivation which he supposes to have ex- 
isted in the earliest ages of society, when there 
was one great empire reaching from the Eastern to 
the Western Ocean, the seat of government being 
in North India, from about the 35th to the 4.5th 
degree of latitude. These are researches which 
make the antiquities of such a work as this but 
mere modern inventions, and the inquiries after 



by his son, the present Godfrey Higgins, 
esq. of Skellow Grange. 

Arms — Erm. on a fesse sa. three towers, 
arg. 

Crest — Out of a tower sa. a lion's head 
arg. 

Estates — Skellow, purchased by the pre- 
sent proprietor's grandfather. Wadworth, 
inherited from Anne Copley, heiress of the 
second branch of the family of Copley, both 
near Doncaster. Milnthorp, near Wake- 
field, derived from the present possessor's 
mother, Jane, heiress of Thorp. Foxup, in 
Craven, purchased by the late Godfrey 
Higgins. 

Seat — Skellow Grange, near Doncaster. 



manors and churches but matters of less than in- 
significancy. Still there is a stability when we 
feel that we are proceeding by the light of the 
written contemporaneous record, which may com- 
pensate for the nearness and narrowness of our 
view. 

" The active mind of Mr. Higgins has also been 
directed upon objects of great local utility. In 
the exercise of his magisterial duties he became 
acquainted with what was the state of the asylum 
at York for the reception of lunatics, and to his 
persevering exertions it chiefly is owing that a great 
reform was accomplished in that establishment. 
This led him to other views of the possibility of 
improving the condition of such unfortunate per- 
sons in a lower rank of life, and to him is princi- 
pally to be attributed the erection of the house for 
the pauper lunatics of the West Riding, erected 
near to the town of Wakefield, where, under the 
very able superintendence of Dr. Ellis, every ex- 
pectation from it has been satisfied." 

Mr. Higgins was author of another work, en- 
titled " Mahomed, or the Illustrious ; an Apology 
for the Life and Character of the celebrated Pro- 
phet of Arabia," 1829, 8vo. A refutation of some 
of the opinions promulgated in this book was pub- 
lished in the " Gentleman's Magazine" for January, 
1830, by Edfvard Upham, esq. author of the " His- 
tory of Budhism ;" to which Mr. Higgins replied 
in the following month, and Mr. Upham rejoined 
in March.

tinguished families in Scotland. 

Sir Duncan Campbell, grandson of Sir 
Colin More Campbell, ancestor of the

raigned the preceding year, as a participa- 
tor in the Ryehouse plot, and found 
guilty ; for which he suffered confinement 
in the state prison of the bass, and had 
his estates confiscated. There is little 
doubt, however, but that the accusation was 
a false one. The trial, as detailed by the 
accurate Wodrow is extremely interesting. 
A large portion of the forfeited lands was 
restored by act of parliament passed in 
1690, to his eldest son, but the baronetcy 
never has been revived. His third son,

LONG, OF HAMPTON LODGE. 



165 



Hincage. 



This family is of Wiltshire origin, where 
various branches of that name have been 
established for several centuries.* 

John Longe, of Netheravon, in that 
county, d. in 1630, leaving by Catharine, 
his wife, besides an elder son John, a second 
son, 

Timothy Longe, born 1610, m. Jane, only 
daughter of the Rev. Oliver Brunsell, vicar 
of Wroughton,f in the county of Wilts, by 
Elizabeth, daughter of Henry Martyn, of 
Upham, in the parish of Albourne, in the 
same county, and of the Inner Temple, by 
Jane, daughter of Thomas Walrond, of Al- 
bourne, forester in fee of that chace. He 
died in 1691, and had issue, 

I. Timothy Long, in holy orders, b. in 
1636, rector of St. Alphage, London, 
d. unm. 14th September, 1665, dur- 
ing the great plague, as stated in 
Peck's Desiderata. 
ii. Samuel. 
Samuel Long, second son, b. at Wrough- 
ton in 1638, accompanied the expedition, 
under Penn and Venables, which conquered 



* C-.imden derives the name of Long from the 
traditionary fact, that " a young gentleman of the 
House of Preux," being a follower of the Lord 
Treasurer Hungerford, was "preferred by him to 
a good marriage," and adopted it by reason of his 
stature. Leland designates him as " a stoute felaw 
set up by one of the old Lords Hungerford." 
The principal family of the name was very early 
seated at South Wraxall, and afterwards at Dray- 
cot, by marriage in the time of Henry VI. with 
the heiress of Cerne. These properties were dis- 
severed in 1610, when the male line of Wraxall 
became extinct in 1715, and that of Draycot in 
1805. There is now no known male issue exist- 
ing of this family. Another extensive branch of 
the name was early settled at Semington, Trow- 
bridge, Whaddon, Monkton, and Rowd Ashton, 
places in the vicinity of Wraxall, and at Becking- 
ton and Stratton in Somersetshire. There is at 
present no known male issue extant of this 
branch. A third was early seated at Pottern and 
Cheverell in the same vicinity, and became the 
male ancestry of 11. G. Long, esq. of Rowd Ash- 
ton, and of Walter Long, esq. of Preshaw, in 
Hants. This branch acquired the possessions of 
Wraxall, Rowd Ashton, &c. by an intermarriage 
with the heir female of the INlonkton line, in 
which they had centered in the person of the late 
Walter Long, esq. who d. in 1807. 

The mutual mention made of one another in 
wills and various documents at early periods, by 
different members of these four families, may be 
received as presumptive evidence in favour of a 
common ancestry. 

t Her eldest brother, the Rev. Henry Brunsell, 
LL.U. prebendary of Ely, and rector of Stretham, 
in Cambridgeshire, m. one of the sisters of the 
celebrated Sir Christopher Wren. 



Jamaica in 1655, as a lieutenant in Colonel 
D'Oyley's regiment, with whom he was con- 
nected, and was further appointed secretary 
to Cromwell's commissioners. He received 
large grants of land in that island, where he 
became a colonel of horse, chief justice, 
speaker of the assembly, and one of the 
council. He was subsequently distinguished 
for his spirited and successful resistance to 
the arbitrary measures of the crown in 1679, 
as related in Edwards's West Indies. lie 
died in 1683, and had by his wife, Eliza- 
beth, (who remarried the Rev. John Towers, 
rector of Swaffham Bulbec, in the county

The family of MUCKLESTON is of con- 
siderable antiquity in the county of Salop. 

A charter of the Earl of Arundel and 
Surrey, dated 1399, recites that the lands 
of Roger, son of Roger de Mokleston, 
had been seised into the hands of the earl, 
his father, " whom God assoile," by reason 
of forfeiture for outlawry, pronounced 
against Roger, the son, for the death of 
Richard de Mokleston, his brother, by him 
feloniously slain ; and it further states, that 
Richard Yrland, of Oswestry, had, notwith- 
standing the lands were in the earl's hands, 
purchased them in fee simple from the said 
Roger, the son, "now by the advise of our 
council," says the earl, (such is the almost 
regal style of our ancient nobles) " and for 
the sum of £20 paid by Yrland to us, we 
pardon his purchase of the said land, with- 
out having first obtained our license." 

There can be no doubt that this transla- 
tion refers to the family before us, but it is 
difficult to assign its proper place in the 
pedigree, which commences with 



Hocskyn Mi'cci.eston, born in 1345,

Kvnaston, and was father of 

Roger Mi'cci.eston, living in 1366, and 
1383. who m. Susan Ottley, and besides, of

Pawson-Hargrave, esq. in 1817, was high-sheriff of Northumberland during the great 
contested election for that county in 1826. 



t The name of Trotter is of ancient standing on the Scottish border. The family this reverend 
gentleman represented held broad lands in that part of Roxburghshire called the Merse, until forfeited 
by adherence to the Stuarts in 1715 and 1745, the last possessor having suffered a long imprisonment, 
beside, in Edinburgh and Carlisle Castles. AYilliani Trotter, an ancestor, is recorded to have fallen at 
the battle of Flodden ; and in corroboration of the fact, a gold ring was found, about the middle of the 
last century, upon the site of the field of battle, bearing an inscription in Norman-French, having be- 
tween each word a boar's head, the armorial bearings of the Trotters, and common to them with the 
Cordons and Swintons.

MACLEOD, OF CADBOLL. 



17; 



Motto — Favente Deo. 
Estates — Shawdon, Titlington, West Bol- 
ton, Lemming-ton, Hoppen, West Byker, in 
Northumberland. Coal mines, at Jarrow, 
in the county of Durham, and an estate at 
Kirbywiske, in Yorkshire, which has des- 
cended, in a right line, to the present pro- 
prietor from the 3rd of Henry V. anno 
1415. 

Seats — Shawdon Hall, Lemmington 
Tower, and Titlington Hall, in Northum- 
berland. 

Shawdon Hall is situated in the fertile 
vale formed by the river Alne, in the parish 
of Whittingham, Northumberland, and built 
in 1779, by the late William Hargrave, esq. 
nearly on the site of the ancient castle of 
Shaw-don, described as one of the border 
fortresses. The house is approached from 
the east and west lodges through an avenue 
of majestic elms, terminated by a row of 
variegated hollies, which, for beauty and 
magnificence, are allowed to be the first in 
the kingdom, several of them being more 



than fifty feet in height, and their trunks 
nine feet in circumference. Upon the ad- 
joining hills are the remains of two Roman 
camps ; several cavins likewise afford evi- 
dence of more remote antiquity; some of 
them have been opened, and found to con- 
tain urns of unbaked clay, on which was 
traced a rude pattern, and enclosing human 
bones and ashes. Silver coins of Robert 
Bruce, David of Scotland, and the Edwards 
of England, have been occasionally found, 
together with a gold rose noble of Edward 
I. in beautiful preservation. Shawdon is a 
manor in itself, the court rolls and entries 
of suit and service to which are extant for 
some centuries back. The lords of the do- 
main had once possessed the power of exe- 
cuting malefactors within their own boun- 
daries, and a tree, which bears the appella- 
tion of the Hangman's Oak, is yet pointed 
out, beneath which, a few years ago, were 
discovered the remains of fourteen persons, 
who had there probably suffered the penalty 
of their crimes.

Mr. Macleod succeeded his father in 1770. He was, 
formerly, representative in parliament for Cromarty, and

office was first instituted in Scotland, anno 1 794. He re- 
signed in 1 833. He is a deputy-lieutenant for Ross-shire.

It is acknowledged universally that the 
Macleods of Scotland, sprang from the Nor- 
wegian Kings of Man, of which monarchs 
the following is a brief narrative, as re- 
corded in the Chronicle of the Island, pub- 
lished with Cambden's Britannia, anno 1586. 



Godfred, surnamed Crowan, son 
of Harold, the Black, being ap- 
pointed sovereign of Man, and the 
Western Isles, by Harold, the Im- 
perious, came with a fleet, and army, 
and took possession of his kingdom,

MACLEOD, OF CADBOLL. 



anno 1066, but the superiority still 
remained with the kings. He left at 
his decease three sous, 

1. Lagman. 

2. Harold. 

3. Olaus, or Olave, a child at his 
father's death. 

II. Lagman, King of Man and the Isles : 
this monarch's brother, Harold, 
having raised a rebellion against 
him, was defeated and made prisoner, 
and Lagman put out his eyes, and 
otherwise treated him barbarously, 
Lagman being afterwards seized with 
remorse, went on a pilgrimage to 
Jerusalem, and died there issueless, 
in the year 1089. His unhappy 
brother, Harold, dying also childless, 
the kingdom fell to the youngest and 
only surviving brother, 

in. Olaus, or Olave, surnamed the 
Swarthy, who being still in minority, 
the government of the island was 
committed to a nobleman of Ireland, 
named Donald, son of Thade, but 
the regent acting tyrannically, was 
expelled the kingdom, and Olaus 
having then attained majority, as- 
sumed the reins of government, 
anno 1102. This monarch espoused 
Africa, daughter of Fergus, Lord of 
Galloway, at the time one of the most 
powerful subjects in Scotland, and 
had one sou, Godfred, his heir, with 
several daughters, one of whom, 
Africa, married Somerled* Macgil- 
bred, thane of Argyll, ancestor of 
the Macdonalds, and by him had 
four sons, viz. Dungall, Reginald, 
Angus, and Olave. Through this 
marriage the family eventually lost 
the kingdom of the Isles, and upon it 
was founded the title of Kings and 
Lords of the Isles, assumed by the 
descendants of Somerlade, the Mac- 
donalds ; Olaus had likewise three 
illegitimate sons, Reginald, Lagman, 
and Harold. He was a good prince, 
and always lived in league and 
friendship with the kings of Scotland 
and Ireland. After a peaceful reign 
of about forty years, he was treache- 
rously murdered by the sons of his 
natural brother, Harold, anno 1143, 
and was s. by his only lawful son, 

iv. Godfred, King of Man and the 
Isles, who m. Phingold, daughter of 
Maclotten, son of Mackartae, King 
of Ireland, by whom he had one son, 
Olaus, or Olave, his heir, and two 
natural sons, Reginald and Ivar. 

* See Burke's Peerage and Baronetage, article, 
Lord Macdonald. 



This Godfred proving a tyrant, his 
subjects rebelled under Torphin, the 
son of Otter, and others, who trans- 
ferred the goverment of the island to 
Dungall, son of Somerlede. King 
Godfred d. in 1187, and his onh 
lawful son, 
v. Olaus, surnamed the Black, being- 
then only ten years of age, the nobles 
cast their eyes on Reginald, his 
natural brother, who was a brave 
man, but he had no sooner got the 
reigns of government than he seized 
upon the cown, of which he retained 
possession thirty eight years, and 
gave his brother, Olaus, the rightful 
heir, the island of Lewes, for his sub- 
sistence. Olaus, however, after en- 
countering many dangers and diffi- 
culties, recovered, by the assistance 
of Paul, sheriff of Sky e, possession of 
his kingdom of Man and the Isles, 
anno 1236, and enjoyed it until he 
died, in the year 1237. He had been 
thrice married, first, to a daughter of 
one of the nobles of Kintyre, by 
whom he had three sons, viz. 

1. Harold, ~) Kings of Man and 

2. Reginald, r the Isles, in suc- 

3. Magnus, J cession. 

By his second wife lie had no issue, 
but by the third, Christina, daughter 
of Ferquhar, earl of Ross, he was 
father of three other sons, 

1. Leoid, Loyd, or LBOD, the 
acknowledged progenitor of the 
clan Macleod. 

2. GtiN, from whom the clan Gun, 
in Sutherland, are descended. 

3. Leaundres, of whom the clan 
Leaunders, in Ross-shire. 

The three elder sons became in sue; 
cession Kings of Man and the Isles, 
but that dominion terminated when 
Magnus, King of Norway, made a 
surrender of Man, and the western 
isles to Alexander III. King of 
Scotland, in 1265. Magnus, the 
youngest of the three sons, and last 
king, died without issue, at the castle 
Ross, anno 1 '266, and thus terminated 
the Norwegian race of sovereigns ; we 
now proceed w ith the eldest of the 
three younger sons. 
vi. Leod, who had in patrimony from 
his father, the island of Lewes, &c. 
This prince being young at the time 
of his father's death, was fostered 
and brought up in the house of Paul, 
son of Boke, sheriff of Skye, a, man 
of the utmost power and authority in 
these parts, who had been the con- 
stant friend of his father in all his 
difficulties, and by whose assistance 
he had recovered his crown. Lcod

flourished in the reign of Alexander 
III. and got from the said Paul, the 
lands of Herries, &c. He obtained 
likewise from his grandfather, the 
Earl of Ross, a part of the barony of 
Glenely, and he and his descendants 
have been promiscuously distinguish- 
ed by the titles of Herries, Glenely, 
Dunvegan, that Ilk, &c. He m. the 
daughter of Macraild Armine, a 
Danish knight, by whom he got the 
lands of Mogenish, Bracadale, Duri- 
nish, Dunvegan, Lindell, Vaterness, 
and part of Trotterness, in the Isle of 
Skye. By this lady he had two sons, 
Tormod, and Torquil, called Mac- 
Leods, as the sous of Leod. The 
descendants of the former were 
called Sheil Tormod, and the 
" Macleods of Herries." The pos- 
terity of the latter, Sheil Torquil, 
and the " Macleods of Lewes."* 
Leod was s. by his son, 
Torquil Macleod, second baron of Lewes, 
b. in the time of Alexander HI. married 
Dorothea, daughter of William, Earl of 
Ross, and died in the reign of King Robert 
Bruce, leaving a son and successor, 

Norman Macleod, third baron of Lewes, 
who was *. by his son, 

Torquil Macleod, fourth baron of Lewes, 
who got a charter under the great seal, from 
King David Bruce, " Torquilo Macleod, 
de Lewes, terrarum baroniae de Assynt, 
cum fortalice, &,c. &c." He espoused Mar- 
garet Nicholson, by whom he acquired a 
considerable accession to his estate, and had 
two sons, viz. 

i. Roderick, his heir, who carried on 

the line of Lewes. 
ii. Norman 
The second son, 

Norman Macleod, obtained from his 
father in patrimony, the barony of Assynt, 
and dying in the reign of James I. left a son 
and successor, 

Angus Macleod, second baron of Assynt, 



* As it cannot at this distance of time be ascer- 
tained which was the elder, the precedency having 
been claimed at different periods by both, we sub- 
join the grounds upon which the line of Torquil 
claims the seniority. 

First, Torquil succeeded his father in the 
island of Lewes, the paternal estate of the family. 

Second, The descendants of Torquil always 
carried in their armorial bearing, the arms of the 
Kings of Man, and the Isles, their paternal an- 
cestors. 

T hird, It has been the unvaried tradition in the 
family, that Torquil was the elder brother, which 
is confirmed by Sir David Lindsay, at the Mount, 
Lord Lyon, King at arms, and by Buchanan's 
History of the Origin of the Clars, page 62, 
printed in 1723.

In the tenth year of his reign, William 
the Conqueror granted the forest, valley, 
and lordship of Riddesdale, in the county of 
Northumberland, to his kinsman, 

Sir Robert de Umfrevill, knt. sur- 
named Robert with the Beard, Lord of Tours 
and Vian, to hold, by the service of defend- 
ing the vicinity from enemies and wolves, 
with the sword which King William had by 
his side when he entered Northumberland. 
By the tenor of the grant he was invested 
with the power of holding, governing, exer- 
cising, hearing and judging, in all the pleas 
of the Crown, as well as others occurring 
within the precincts of Riddesdale. The son 
of Sir Robert, 

Robert de Umfrevill, was father of 

Odonel de Umfreville, who held, by 
feudal tenure, the castle of Prudhoe, with 
those of Otterbourne, Harbottle, and Rid- 
desdale, all in the county of Northumber- 
land. He opposed the Scotch invasion 
under Duncan, and was in the battle wherein 



the Scottish king was taken prisoner. Of 
this baron one of the monks of Tynemouth 
grievously complained temp. Henry II. for 
his exactions upon his neighbours towards 
repairing the roof of the castle of Prudhoe. 
He died in 1182, leaving a daughter, Matilda, 
wife of William de Albini, and a son and 
successor, 

Robert de Umfreville, baron of Prud- 
hoe, who by deed, dated 28th Henry II. 
granted certain lands to the monks of New- 
minster. He was succeeded by his grand- 
son,* 

Richard de Umfreville, baron of Prud- 
hoe (son of Gilbert de Umfreville). This 
feudal lord appears, in the 7th Richard II. 
to have pledged his lands of Turnay to 
Aaron, a Jew, for the sum of £22. 6s. which 
he then owed the Israelite. In the 5th of 
King John his lordship obtained the right of 
preventing all persons from grazing, hunt-

ing, or cutting down timber, in the forest of 
Riddesdale ; and in nine years afterwards, 
the times being then turbulent, he delivered 
up his four sons in hostage, with his castle 
of Prudhoe, as guarantee for his loyalty ; 
notwithstanding which, so soon as the barons 
took up arms, he appeared amongst them, 
when his lands were seized, and granted to 
Hugh de Baliol. In the reign of Henry 
III. however, he made his peace, and had 
restitution of the castle of Prudhoe. Ri- 
chard's eldest sou, 

Gilbert de Umfreville, succeeded to 
the baronv of Prudhoe, and doing homage, 
2nd Henry III. and paying £100. for his 
relief, had livery of his lands. In the 13th 
of the same reign he was one of the northern 
barons appointed by the king to be at Ber- 
wick-upon-Tweed upon Sunday before Mid- 
Lent, to attend Alexander of Scotland 
thertce to York, where the English monarch 
met the Scottish king, and to a charter be- 
tween the two princes the name of Gilbert 
de Umfreville is affixed as a witness. He 
died 29th Henry III. according to Matthew 
Paris, " a famous baron, guardian and chief 
flower of the north," leaving a son and heir, 

Gilbert de Umfrevill, seven years old 
at his father's decease, whose guardianship 
was committed to Simon de Montfort, Earl 
of Leicester, in consideration of one thou- 
sand marks paid to the king. This feudal 
lord attained majority in the 43rd Hi mo III. 
and in six years afterwards we find him in 
arms with the barons, but he made bis peace 
before the battle of Evesham, and obtained 
then some immunities from the crown. In 
the 20th of Edward I. he was governor of 
the castles of Dundee and Forfar, and the 
whole territory of Angus, in Scotland, and 
appears to have borne the title of Earl of 
Angus, in right of his wife, Elizabeth, 
daughter and heiress of John Comyn, Earl of 
Angus. He was summoned to parliament 
however, subsequently, 24th June, 1295, as 
Baron Umfrevill only ; but in the 25th of 
Edward I. and from that period to the 1st of 
Edward II. he had summons as "Gilberto 
de Umfrevill, Comiti de Angos." This title 
the English lawyers refused to acknowledge 
(Angus not being within the kingdom of 
England), until he had openly produced the 
king's writ in public court, by which he was 
called to parliament as Earl of Angus. His 
lordship was highly instrumental in forti- 
fying the castles and strongholds in Scotland, 
and was the only man who refused to sur- 
render the fortresses in his custody to the 
enemy. He died in 1308, and was succeeded 
by his son (then thirty years of age), 

Robert de Umfrevill, second Earl of 
Angus, and feudal baron of Prudhoe. This 
nobleman distinguished himself, while his 
father lived, in the Scottish wars, and soon 
after his accession to the honors of the fa- 



mily he was joined in commission with Wil- 
liam, Lord Ros, of Hamlake, and Henry, 
Lord Beaumont, in the lieutenancy of Scot- 
land. In the 11th of Edward II. he was 
one of the commissioners appointed to treat 
with Robert Bruce for a truce between the 
realms. His lordship espoused, first, Lucie, 
daughter of Philip de Kyme, Baron Kyme, 
and eventually heiress of her brother Wil- 
liam, second Baron Kyme, by whom he had 
issue, 

Gilbert, summoned to parliament as 
third Earl of Angus, from 2/th Ja- 
nuary, 1332, to 26th August. 1380. 
This nobleman acquired great reputa- 
tion in the Scottish wars, and was a 
chief commander at the battle of 
Durham, 20th Edward III. where 
David Brus was totally defeated, 
and made prisoner by the English. 
His lordship wedded, first, Johanna, 
daughter of Robert, Lord Willough- 
by de Eresby, by whom he had no 
issue. He m. secondly, Maud, sister 
of Anthony Lucy, and had an only 
child, Robert, who m. Margaret, 
daughter of Henry, Lord Percy, but 
pre-deceased his father without issue. 
The earl, upon the demise issueless 
of William de Kyme, became pos- 
sessed of the manors of Sotby, Sta- 
lynburgh, Kesyll, and Paddockthorp, 
in the county of York, and of Kyme, 
Ersewardby, Methringham, Barum- 
burgli, Culseby, Elkynton, Joyng- 
ham, and other estates in Lincoln- 
shire. His lordship died in 1381, 
having Alianore, his niece, wife of 
Henry Talboys, his heir of the whole 
blood, and Thomas Umfreville, his 
brother of the half blood, his next 
male heir, but none of the family 
were ever subsequently summoned 
to parliament. 
Elizabeth, m. to Gilbert Burdon, and 
had an only daughter and heiress, 
Alianore Burdon, in. to Henry Tal- 
boys, ancestor of the Lords Talboys. 
Robert, second Earl of Angus, wedded, se- 
condly, Eleanora, daughter of Roger de 
Mauduit, and had, 

Robert (Sir), who died issueless. 
Thomas, of whose line we are about 
to treat. 
The earl died in April, 1325. His second 
son, by the second countess, 

Sir Thomas Umfreville, knt. of Har- 
bottle Castle, and proprietor of Holmside 
and Whitley, in Durham, espoused Joane, 
daughter of Adam de Roddam, and had 
issue, 

I. Thomas (Sir), his heir, aged twenty- 
three, 10th Richard II. who died 
12th February, 1390-1, leaving one 
son and five daughters, viz.

future exemplary life, by his singular duty and 
affection to his good mother in her widowhood, 
never to be forgotten, and before he had any pre- 
ferment upon a very urgent occasion, where charity 
and the honour of his family were concerned he 
freely gave away his whole patrimony. 

He yearly clothed thirty poor people, and gave 
pensions to several, and also assisted in bringing 
up and schooling many children, and paying the 
best masters to teach ingenious arts to such as 
were capable of them. Besides the great hospi- 
tality of his house, and sending relief to all the 
sick, and a crown to every poor woman who lay- 
in, and relieving all that came to him from abroad, 
he gave by his will, £300, for the maintenance of 
a school master, to teach the poor children of 
Gateshead ; and he died as he lived, full of the 
love of God, and goodwill towards men, on the 
20th March, 1710, and was buried in the choir of 
Ledgfield church, where there is a marble tomb 
for him. But his most lasting and durable mon- 
ument is — the generosity, the piety, and charity 
of his life. As the last testimony of the esteem 
and honour she had for him, this was painted by 
his most affectionate and only sister, to preserve 
his dear memory amongst his relations. F. Creed, 
aged 68.

The second son, 

Sir John Popham, knt. adopting the legal 
profession, attained its highest honours, and 
accumulating an ample fortune, purchased, 
in the time of Elizabeth, from the family of 
Da rell, the estate of Littlecott, in the 
county of Wilts. Fuller, in his English 
Worthies, speaks thus of this learned per- 
son. " Sir John Popham, of most ancient 
descent, was born at Huntworth, in the 
county of Somerset. Tn his youthful dayes 
he was as stout and skilful a man at sword 
and buckler as any in that age, and wild 
enough in his recreations. But oh ! if 
quicksilver could be really fixed, to what a 
treasure it would amount! Such is wild 
youth seriously reduced to gravity, as by 
this young man did appear. He applied 
himself to a more profitable fencing, the 
study of the law, therein attaining to such 
eminency, that he became the queen's at- 
torney, and afterwards Lord ChiefJustice 
of England. Being sent, anno 1600, by 
the queen, with some others, to the Earl of 
Essex, to know the cause of the confluence of 
so many military men into his house, the 
soldiers therein detained him for a time, 
which some did make tantamount to an im- 
prisonment. This, his violent detention, 
Sir John deposed upon oath at the Earl's 
trial, which I note the rather for the rarity 
thereof, that a lord-chief-justice should be 
produced as witness in open court. In the 
beginning of the reign of King James his 
justice was exemplary on thieves and rob- 
bers. The land then swarmed with people 
which had been souldiers, who had never 
gotten (or else quite forgotten) any other 
vocation. Hard it was for peace to feed all 
the mouths which a former war did breed ; 
being too proud to begge, too lazy to labour, 
those infected the highwayes with their felo- 
nies, some presuming on their multitudes, 
as the robbers on the northern rode, whose 
knot (otherwise not to be untyed) Sir John 
cut asunder with the sword of justice. He 
possessed King James how the frequent 
granting of pardons was prejudicial to jus- 
tice, rendering the judges to the contempt of 
insolent malefactors ; which made His Ma- 
jesty more sparing afterwards in that kind, 
hi a word, the deserved death of some scores

preserved the lives and livelihoods of more 
thousands, travellers owing their safety to 
this judge's severity many years after his 
death, which happened anno Domini 16 — ." 
Sir John Popham resided for several 
years in the town of Wellington, in Somer- 
setshire, where he had built a large and 
stately mansion, and during that time greatly 
enhanced his fortune by the purchase of se- 
veral valuable estates, in the counties of So- 
merset and Devon. In the civil war the 
mansion at Wellington was obtained by 
stratagem by one Bovet, of Taunton, who 
converted it into a garrison for the use of 
the parliament army, and defended it for a 
considerable time against Sir Richard Gren- 
ville, who came to its rescue, in which con- 
test it was so battered that it was never after- 
wards deemed worth repairing. The judge 
was a great patron and benefactor to Wel- 
lington, and in pursuance of his will, (bear- 
ing date 21st September, 1604), an hospital 
was erected at the west end of the town for 
the maintenance of twelve poor impotent 
and aged people, whereof six to be men and 
six women ; and for the education of two 
poor men's children. 

Sir John Popham in. Amy, daughter and 
heir of Robert Games, esq. of Caselton, in 
the county of Glamorgan, and had issue, 

FRANCIS (Sir), his heir. 

Penelope, m. to Mr. Serjeant Thomas 
Hanham.

Clandford.

Hestercombe. 

Elizabeth, m. to Sir Richard Champer- 
non. 

Mary, m. to Sir John Mallet, of Enmore. 

Katherine, m. to Edward Rogers, esq. 
of Cannington, in Somersetshire. 
He died in 1G07, and his remains repose 
under a magnificent tomb in the church of 
Wellington, surrounded by a palisade of 
wood and iron. On the tablet are effigies of 
himself and of lady Popham. The judge is 
attired in his robes, chain, and small square 
black cap, his head turned towards the west. 
On the lower basement, at the head and feet, 
are four smaller figures of two men and two 
women, kneeling face to face. On the north 
side of the basement are five boys and eight 
girls, dressed in black, kneeling in a row ; 
and on the south side are nine women kneel- 
ing in the same manner. A superb arched 
canopy, ornamented with the family arms, 
roses, paintings, and obelisks, is placed over 
the heads of the two principal figures. The 
whole is supported by eight round columns 
of black marble, five feet high, with capi- 
tals green and gold. 
Sir John was s. by his son, 

Sik Francis Popham, kiit. of Littlecott, 
member in the last parliament of Queen Eli- 



zabeth, and in all those of Kings James I. 
and Charles I., and excepted out of the ge- 
neral pardon by the latter prince. He 
wedded Anne, daughter and heiress of John 
Dudley,* esq. of Stoke Newington, grandson 
of Thomas, son of Edward Lord Dudley, 
and had issue,

the civil wars, and died unm.

manded a parliamentary regiment 
during the civil wars, and at his de- 
cease, in August, 1661, had a public 
funeral at Westminster Abbey, where 
his remains, with those of his wife, 
were interred. The court of the 
Protector assisted at the obsequies of 
Colonel Popham, and a splendid mo- 
nument was erected in the abbey to 
the memory of himself and his lady. 
Their statues, in white marble, as 
large as life, stand under a lofty ca- 
nopy, resting their arms, in a reflect- 
ing posture, upon a marble altar, 
on which lie the gloves of an armed 
knight. The inscription was erased 
at the Restoration. Colonel Popham

of Cromwell's upper house. This gentle- 
man returned to parliament in the 15th and 
16th of Charles I. signed the protestation, 
took the covenant, and rose to be colonel of 
foot in the parliament army. So dreaded 
was he by his majesty, that he excepted him 
as well as his father, out of the general par- 
don. In 1644 Colonel Popham was appoint- 
ed a commissioner for martial law, and one 
of the council of state in 1649. In 1654 he 
was returned again to parliament, and in 
1656 for Somersetshire ; but Cromwell 
would not permit him to sit in the latter 
parliament, well knowing his attachment to 
a republican form of government; but to 
gratify his ambition, he raised him to the 
rank of one of his lords. In the healing 
parliament Popham voted for the restoration, 
and had subsequently the honour of enter- 
taining King Charles II. at Littlecott, dur- 
ing the royal progress. He m. first, Letitia,

V To a ballad in " Rokeby," Sir Wal- 
ter Scott appends the following tradition 
regarding Littlecott, when possessed by the 
Darells. 

" Littlecott House stands in a low and 
lonely situation. On three sides it is sur- 
rounded by a park, (hat spreads over the 
adjoining hill ; on the fourth by meadows, 
which are watered by the river Kennet. 
Close on one side of the house is a grove of 
lofty trees, along the verge of which runs 
one of the principal avenues to it through 
the park. It is an irregular building, of 
great antiquity, and was probably erected 
about the termination of feudal warfare, 
when defence came no longer to be an 
object in a country mansion. Many cir- 
cumstances, however, in the interior of the 
house, seem appropriate to feudal times. 



POPHAM, OF L1TTLECOTT. 



201 



The hall is very spacious, floored with 
stones, and lighted by large transom win- 
dows, that are clothed with casements. Its 
walls are hung with old military accoutre- 
ments, that have long been left a prey to 
rust. On one end of the hall is a range of 
coats of mail and helmets ; and there is on 
every side abundance of old-fashioned pis- 
tols and guns, many of them with match- 
locks. Immediately below the cornice 
hangs a row of leathern jerkins, made in 
the form of a shirt, supposed to have been 
worn as armour by the vassals. A large 
oak table, reaching nearly one end of the 
room to the other, might have feasted the 
whole neighbourhood ; and an appendage 
to one end of it made it answer at other 
times for the old game of shuffleboard. The 
rest of the furniture is in a suitable style, 
particularly an arm-chair, of cumbrous 
workmanship, constructed of wood, curi- 
ously turned, with a high back and trian- 
gular seat, said to have been used by Judge 
Popham in the reign of Elizabeth. The 
entrance into the hall is at one end by a low 
door, communicating with a passage that 
leads from the outer door in the front of the 
house to a quadrangle within ; at the other 
it opens upon a gloomy staircase, by which 
you ascend to the first floor, and, passing 
the doors of some bedchambers, enter a 
narrow gallery, which extends along the 
back-front of the bouse from one end to the 
other of it, and looks upon an old garden. 
This gallery is hung with portraits, chiefly 
in Spanish dresses of the sixteenth century. 
In one of the bedchambers which you pass 
in going towards the gallery, is a bedstead 
with blue furniture, which time has now 
made dingy and threadbare, and in the bot- 
tom of one of the bed curtains you are 
shown a place where a small piece had 
been cut out and sewn in again, a circum- 
stance which serves to identify the scene of 
the following story. 

" It was a dark rainy night, in the month 
of November, that an old midwife sat mus- 
ing by her cottage fireside, when on a sudden 
she was startled by a loud knocking at the 
door. On opening it she found a horseman, 
who told her that her assistance was required 
immediately by a. person of rank, and that 
she should be handsomely rewarded, but 
that there were leasons for keeping the affair 
a strict secret, and therefore she must sub- 
mit to being blindfolded, and to be con- 
ducted to the bedchamber of the lady. With 
some hesitation the midwife consented ; the 
horseman bound her eyes, and placed heron 
a pillion behind him. After proceeding in 
silence for many miles through rough and 



dirty lanes, they stopped, and the midwife 
was led into a house, which from the length 
of her walk through the apartments, as 
well as the sounds about her, she disco- 
vered to be the seat of wealth and power. 
When the bandage was removed from her 
eyes, she found herself in a bedchamber, in 
which there was a lady, on whose account 
she had been sent for, and a man of haughty 
and ferocious aspect. The lady was deli- 
vered of a fine boy. Immediately the man 
commanded the midwife to give him the 
child, and catching it from her, he hurried 
across the room, and threw it on the back of 
the fire that was blazing in the chimney. 
The child, however, Mas strong, and by its 
struggles rolled itself off upon the hearth, 
when the ruffian again seized it with fury, 
and, in spite of the intercession of the mid- 
wife, and the more pious entreaties of the 
mother, thrust it under the grate, and raking 
the live coals upon it, soon put an end to its 
life. The midwife, after spending some 
time in affording all the relief in her power 
to the wretched mother, was told that she 
must begone. Her former conductor ap- 
peared, who again bound her eyes, and 
conveyed her behind him to her own home ; 
he then paid her handsomely, and departed. 
The midwife was strongly agitated by the 
horrors of the preceding night ; and she 
immediately made a deposition of the fact 
before a magistrate. Two circumstances 
afforded hopes of detecting the house in 
which the crime had been committed ; one 
was, that the midwife, as she sat by the bed- 
side, had, with a view to discover the place, 
cut out a piece of the bed curtain, and sown 
it in again ; the other was, that as she had 
descended the staircase, she had counted 
the steps. Some suspicion fell upon one 
Darell, at that time the proprietor of Lit- 
tlecott House, and the domain around it. 
The house was examined, and identified 
by the midwife, and Darell was tried at 
Salisbury for the murder. He escaped the 
sentence of the law ; but broke his neck by 
a fall from his horse in hunting, in a few 
months after. The place where this hap- 
pened is still known by the name of Darell s 
Stile, a spot to be dreaded by the peasant 
whom the shades of evening have overtaken 
on his way. 

" Littlecott House is two miles from Hun- 
gerford, in Berkshire, through which the 
Bath road passes. The fact occurred in the 
reign of Elizabeth. All the important 
circumstances I have given exactly as they 
are told in the county ; some trifles only 
are added, either to render the whole 
connected, or to increase the impression."

MARKHAM, OF BECCA HALL. 



Sir John Caunton, of Caunton, and was 
father of 

Sir John de MARKHA m, knt. one of the 
Justices of the Common Pleas, from the 
20th Richard II. to 9th Henry IV. He 
acquired great possessions in Lincolnshire, 
by his first marriage, with Elizabeth, daugh- 
ter of Sir John de Creasy, killed at the bat- 
tle of Shrewsbury, and had a son, Robert 
(Sir), his heir." He espoused secondly, 
Milicent, daughter and co-heir of Sir John 
de Bekeringe, knt. and relict of Sir Nicolas 
Burdon, knt. and had another son, 

John (Sir), an eminent lawyer, ap- 
pointed Lord Chief Justice of the 
Court of King's Bench, '2'2nd Henry 
VI. and had his patent renewed 1st 
Edward IV. Of this distinguished 
and upright judge we have the fol- 
lowing account, " John Markham 
was born at Markham, in Notting- 
hamshire, descended of an ancient 
and worthy family. He employed 
his youth in the studying of the mu- 
nicipal law of tliis realm, wherein he 
attained to such eminency, that King 
Edward IV. knighted him, and made 
him Lord Chief Justice of the King's 
Bench, in the place of Sir John Por- 
tescue, that learned and upright 
judge, who fled aw;i\ with King 
Henry VI. Yet Fortescue was not 
missed, because Markham succeeded 
him ; and that loss, which otherwise 
could not be repaired, now could not 
be perceived. For though these two 
judges did severally lean to the sides 
of Lancaster and York, yet both sat 
upright in matters of judicature." 
Camden states this chief justice " the 
greatest ornament of this family, who 
tempered his judgments with so much 
equity (as you may read in the 
histories of England), that his name 
will endure as long as time itself. 
After his being displaced on a very 
honourable account,* and having 

* Dugdale thus relates the cause of Markhaiu's 
dismissal ; " King Edward IV. having married 
into the family of the YYidviles, (gentlemen of 
more antiquity than wealth, and of higher spirits 
than fortunes) thought fit, for his own honor, to 
bestow honor upon them, but he could not so 
easily provide them wealth as titles. For honor 
he could derive from himself, like light from a 
c;indle, without any diminishing of his own lustre ; 
whereas, wealth flowing from him, as water from 
a fountain, made the spring the shallower. Where- 
fore he resolved to cut down some prime subjects, 
and to ingraff the queen's kindred into their es- 
tates, which otherwise, like suckers, must feed on 
the stock of his own exchequer. There was at 
tins time one, Sir Thomas Cook, late lord mayor 
of London, and knight of the Bath, one who had 
well licked his fingers under Queen Margaret, 



thereby deservedly obtained the name 
of the upright judge, he retired to 



( whose wardrober he was, and customer of Hamp- 
ton), a man of great estate. It was agreed that 
he should be accused of high treason, and a com- 
mission of oyer and terminer granted forth to the 
lord mayor, the Duke of Clarence, the Earl of 
Warwick, the Lord Rivers, Sir John Markham, 
Sir John Fogg, &c. to try him in Guildhall ; and 
the king, by private instructions to the judge, 
appeared so far, that Cook, though he was not, 
must be found guilty, and if the law were too 
short, the judge must stretch it to the purpose. 
The fault laid to his charge was for lending 
monevs to Queen Margaret, wife to Kins Hfnhy 
VI. : the proof was the confession of one Hawkins, 
who being racked in the Tower, had confessed so 
much. I be council for the king hanging as much 
weight on the smallest wire as it would hold, ag- 
gravated each particular, and by their rhetorical 
flashes blew the fault up to a great height. Sii 
Thomas Cook pleaded for himself, that Hawkins, 
indeed, upon a season, came to him, and requested 
him to lend one thousand marks, upon good secu- 
rity. But he desired first to know for whom the 
money should be : and understanding it was for 
Queen .Margaret, denied to lend any money, though 
at length the said Hawkins descended so low as 
to require but one hundred pounds, and departed 
without any penny lent him. Judge Markham, 
in a grave speech, did recapitulate, select, and 
collate the material points on either side, shewing 
that the proof reached not the charge of high 
treason, and misprision of treason was the highest 
it could amount to; and intimated to the jury to 
be tender in matters of life, and discharge good 
consciences. The jury being wise men, (whose 
apprehensions could make up a whole sentence of 
every nod of the judge) saw it behoved them to 
draw up treason into as narrow a compass as 
might be, lest it became their own case ; for they 
lived in a troublesome world, wherein the cards 
were so shuffled that two kings were turned up 
trumps at once, which amazed men how to play 
their games, whereupon they acquitted the pri- 
soner of high treason, and found him guilty as the 
judge directed. Vet it cost Sir Thomas Cook, 
before he could get bis liberty, eight hundred 
pounds to the queen, and eight thousand pounds 
to the king ; a sum in that age more sounding 
like the ransom of a prince than the fine of a sub- 
ject. Besides, the Lord Rivers (the queen's 
father) had, during his imprisonment, despoiled 
his houses, one in the city, and another in the 
country, of plate and furniture, for which he never 
received a pennv i-ecompense. Vet God righted 
i him of the wrongs men did him, by blessing the 
remnant of his estate to him and his posterity, 
which still flourish at Giddy Hall, in F'-ssex. As 
for Sir John Markham, the king's displeasure 
fell so heavy on him, that he was ousted of his 
place, and Sir Thomas Billing, put in his room, 
though the one lost that office with more honoT 
than the other got it, and gloried in this, that 
though the king could make him no judge, be 
could not make him a corrupt judge. He lived 
privately the rest of his days, having got a fair 
estate bv his practice.

School. Here he distinguished himself, by 
assiduity in his studies, and particularly by 
some compositions in Latin verse, and at 
the usual age was sent to Christ Church 
College, Oxford, where he obtained the 
degree of A.M. in 1745. In 1752 he pro- 
ceeded bachelor, and in a few years after, 
doctor of civil laws ; from which it was 
thought by many not to have been his in- 
tention, at that time, to adopt the cle- 
rical functions. In 1759, having taken 
orders, he was made a prebendary of 
Durham ; in 1764, he resigned the master- 
ship of Westminster School, to which he 
had been appointed in 1750, and in 1763,

On the south side of the river Tees stands 
an inconsiderable village called Stapylton, 
whence this ancient family hath obtained 
its surname. Tradition states that, in the 
year 450, Octa, brother of Hengist, and 
Ebusa arrived, with their followers, on the 
banks of the Tees, to defend the adjacent 
country from the ravages of the Picts, and 
that being Angles, and some from that part 
of the Cimbrica Chersonesus, which is still 
called Stapelholm, situated between Sles- 
wick and Frederickstall, they preserved the 



name of their original residence by calling 
the new settlement Stapyltun.* 

In 1052, Heryon or Herman was seised 
of the manor or lordship of Stapylton upon 
Teys. He was father of 

Allan, of Stapylton, living in 1080, who

Of this branch was the celebrated 
Sir Philip Stapylton, who purchas- 
ed Warter on the Woulds, in the 
East Riding of Yorkshire. This dis- 
tinguished patriot was one of the 
five members demanded from the 
House of Commons by Charles I. ; 
and by his personal valour and bold- 
ness of spirit, rendered great service 
to the cause he had espoused. Subse- 
quently, however, perceiving Crom- 
well's influence upon the army, Sir 
Philip so resolutely opposed the 
Protector's designs, that he was one 
of those members against whom 
charges were exhibited, and whom 
Clarendon mentions as " men of 
parts, interest, and signal courage, 
and heartily abhorring the intentions 
which they discerned the army to 
have." Stapylton went, afterwards, 



beyond sea, and dying at Calais, in 
August, 1647, was denied burial, 
under the impression that he was in- 
fected with the plague.

Cornwall, one of the gentlemen of His Majesty's most honourable Privy Chamber, 
a magistrate for Cornwall and Devon, and a deputy-lieutenant of the former. 

Hmeage. 

The Kingdons are an old and respec- 
table family of the counties of Cornwall and 
Devon. Their most ancient residence, of 
which there is now any authentic account, 
was at Trehunsey, in the parish of Quithi- 
ock, Cornwall, where they flourished in the 
12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries. In 
the parish church of Quithiock is a cross 
aisle, on the southern side, belonging to 
the ancient mansion and manor of Trehun- 
sey, with the family vault underneath, near 
which stands an antique marble monument, 
on which are the brass effigies of Roger 
Kingdon, (who died A.D. 1462), Joanna, 
his wife, and fifteen children, viz. ten sons 
and five daughters, with four shields of 
arms, and the following inscription :

pitietur Jesus, Amen. 

The arms of Kingdon — Arg. a chev. sa. 
between three magpies ppr. appear on one 
of the shields. 

The younger sons of this numerous family 
dispersed and branched forth into several 
parishes in the counties of Cornwall and 
Devon.* 

William Kingdon, son of Roger, was 
one of the representatives in parliament for 
the Borough of Liskeard, in the 31st Henry 
VI. and Edward Kingdon, his eldest son 
was in the first year of the reign of Ed- 
ward IV. appointed bailie or praefect of 
the county of Surrey, "Anno 1° Regis 
Edwardi Quarti, Rex concessit Edwardo 
Kingdon, pro vita, Officium Ballivas de Sur- 
ria." This Edward was subsequently (7th 
Edward IV.) elected M.P. for Liskeard, a 
horough he continued to represent in many 
successive parliaments. 

The eldest branch of the Kingdon family 
became extinct at Trehunsey, about the 
middle of the sixteenth century, when the 
two co-heiresses married CfllVERTON and 
Vivian ; the manor of Trehunsey, with 
divers lands merged in the Chivertons, 
with whom it remained until the year 1658, 
when Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Richard 
Chiverton, conveyed it in marriage to Sir 
JohnCoryton, hart, from whom it has des- 
cended (through a female heir) to the present 
John Tillie Coryton, esq. of Pentillie 
Castle, (see vol. i. p. 232). The mansion 
of Trehunsey is now a mere farm house. 

Roger Kingdon, (son of Roger King- 
don, esq. descended from one of the sons 
of the Trehunsey family) settled at Hols- 
worthy, in the county of Devon, about the 
year 1730, and engaged in commerce. He 
m. in 1733, Judith, daughter of John Cory, 
esq. and had issue, 

I. John, in holy orders, an active ma- 
gistrate for the counties of Cornwall 
and Devon, and patron of the advow- 
sons of the parishes of Bridgerule, 
Pyworthy, and Holsworthv, in the 
west of Devon, and of Whitstone 
and Marhamchurch, in the North of 
Cornwall. He m. in 1766, Jane 
daughter of the Rev. John Hockin,f

description of the county of Devon, made soon 
after the year 1600, under the head entitled, " An 
Alphabet of the Arms of the Gentlemen of Devon-

have been ;" mentions the name of Kingdon, with 
the arms as described above.

" In the time of the war with France, at the 
beginning of Queen Anne's reign, a ship of war, 
cruising in the Bristol channel, came to an anchor 
off an estate called Godrevy, in the parish of 
Gwithian, then in the possession of John Hockin, 
grandfather of the Rev. John Hockin, who was 
one of the principal inhabitants of that parish, 
and, it being conjectured that the Frenchmen's 
intent was to send in a boat to plunder the house, 
which stood alone, and to carry off the cattle from 
the estate ; this John Hockin, and his family be- 
came alarmed, and collected their friends ;uid 
neighbours to keep watch that night on the cliff ; 
at day break they all dispersed, thinking the dan- 
ger over, but just as Thomas Hockin, father of the 
patentee, then a young man, was getting into bed, 
another person, whose fears had led him out more 
than once to take a view, came in a great hurry 
and told him that a boat full of men, was makiug 
for the shore ; on hearing this, the said Thomas 
slipped on his clothes, and catching up a gun, 
and a pole to feign the appearance of another man, 
ran out and passed down a steep hill to the sea, 
in sight of the boat, from whence he was fired at 
several times ; he, however, got behind a rock, 
which served him as a kind of breast-work, and 
thence with his gun fired on the boat with so 
much vigour and effect as to prevent the crew's 
landing, and at last, made them turn about and 
row back again as fast as they could."

HARCOURT, GEORGE-SIMON, esq. of Ankerwycke Park, in the county of 
Bucks, b. 25th February, 1807, m. 24th June, 1833, Jessy, second daughter of John 
Rolls, esq. of Bryanstone-square. 

Mr. Harcourt, who is this year (1834) high-sheriff for Buckinghamshire, succeeded 
his father in 1809, and is now the representative of the Harcourt family. 

Htntage. 

William de Harcourt, espousing the 
cause of Henry I. against Robert Curtois, 
commanded the troops which defeated Wal- 
leran de Beaumont, Earl of Mellent, in the 
battle near Bourgtouroude, A.D. 1123, and 
for his services was rewarded with large 
possessions in England, which he conferred 
upon his second son, 

Ivo de Harcourt, who was s. by his son,

of Warwickshire and Leicestershire, in the 
years 1199, 1201, and 1202, in which latter 
year he departed this life. This Robert 
m. Isabel, only child and heir of Richard 
de Camville,* of Stanton, in Oxfordshire, 
and acquired thereby that lordship, which 
subsequently bore the name of Stanton- 
Harcourt. He was s. by his eldest son,

of Thomas Noel, by Margaret, eldest dau. 
of Guy le Strange, of Knockyn, and co-heir

quired large estates in Staffordshire, and

s. by his eldest son, 

Sir William de Harcourt, of Stanton- 
Harcourt, who died in 1278, leaving by his 
second wife, Eleanor, daughter of Henry, 
Lord Hastings, by Ada, his wife, daughter 



This is a branch of the ancient house of 
Harcmrt, from which sprang the Earls of 
Haf court, extinct in 1830, and which de- 
duces its pedigree from Bernard, a noble- 
man of the royal blood of Saxony, who ac- 
quired in 876, when Rollo, the Dane, made 
himself master of Normandy, the lordships 
of Harcourt, Caileville, and Beauficel, in 
that duchy. From 
Bernard descended 

Turchetil, Lord of Turquevile, Turque-

his elder brother, Touroude, to William, 
Duke of Normandy, and eventually mur- 
dered for his attachment to that prince. He

of whom the eldest, 

Errand de Harcourt, was commander 
of the archers of Val-de-Ruel, in the army 
which successfully invaded England, anno 
1066. This gallant soldier appears to have 
returned to his own country after he had 
witnessed the crowning of his chief as King 
of England, while his next brother, 

Robert de Harcourt, surnamed the 
Strong, also one of the soldiers of the Con- 
quest, founded the family in England. His 
eldest son,

Henry I.'s second consort, Adeliza, daughter to 
Godfrey I. Duke of Brahant, who gave to the 
said Milicent, on her marriage with the said 
Richard Camville, the lordship of Stanton, in 
the county of Oxford, which was confirmed to her 
and her heirs by Kings Stephen and Henry II.

HARCOURT, OF ANKERWYCKE. 



223 



By the first lie bad no issue, but by the 
second, was father of his successor, (with 
other children), 

Sir Simon Harcourt, who signalized 
himself by feats of arms against the Spa- 
niards in the low countries, where he was 
major of the regiment of horse, commanded 
by his gallant uncle, Sir Horace Vere, Lord 
Tilbury, and at whose seat, Kirby Hall, 
Essex, were the pictures of his lordship's 
officers, and amongst them this Sir Simon 
Harcourt. In 1641 we find him at the head 
of his regiment in Ireland, invested with 
the government of the city of Dublin, and 
the next year in active operation against the 
rebels, raising the blockade of Dublin, and 
gaining other considerable advantages. His 
career terminated, however, within a brief 
period, and we have the following account 
of his last exploit ; " On March 26th, 1643, 
Sir Simon Harcourt, with a small party, 
marched out of Dublin, towards Wick- 
low, and finding the rebels possessed of the 
castle of Carrick Main, but four miles from 
the city, he sent back for two great guns to 
batter it, but before they arrived, Sir Simon, 
as he was viewing the castle, with two 
hundred musketeers, received a shot from 
the garrison, which killed him on the spot." 
He had espoused Anne, daughter of William, 
Lord Paget, by whom (who married se- 
condly, Sir William Waller, of Osterly 
Park, the parliament's general) he had two 
sons, Frederick, the younger, who died 
without issue ; and the elder, his successor, 
Sir Philip Harcourt, of Stanton Har- 
court, who received the honor of knight- 
hood, at Whitehall, 5th June, 1660, and was 
returned to parliament by the county of 
Oxford, on the 21st March, 1680-1. This 
gentleman m. first, Anne, dau. of Sir Wil- 
liam Waller, of Osterly Park, by whom (who 
d. 23rd August, 1664) he had an only son, 
Simon, who attaining great eminence 
at the bar, was constituted Lord 
Chancellor of Great Britain in 
1712, and raised to the peerage, as 
Baron and Viscount Harcourt,* 
(See Burke's Extinct and Dormant 
Peerage) 
Sir Philip espoused secondly, Elizabeth,

ligation for the services rendered 
to her majesty's deceased mother. 
Throughout the queen's subsequent 
unhappy reign, Craufurd never once 
failed in loyalty and attachment to 
his ill-fated mistress. In the turbu- 
lent times of 1651, the queen, appre- 
hensive that the chapel at Holyrood 
might be plundered, directed Sir 
James Paterson, the sacristan, to 
place the sacred vessels and para- 
phernalia in the custody of her re- 
spectable almoner, Mr, Archibald 
Craufurd,* and in 1567, whileacaptive 
in Lochleven Castle, Mary found 
means to convey into the hands of 
this faithful servant, certain pieces 
of plate for the service of her table, 
which he safely preserved until they 
were demanded by the treasurer, 
Robert Richardson, and by him de- 
livered to the Regent Moray, whose 
acquittance to Mr. Archibald Crau- 
furd is still preserved at Craufurd- 
land. This estimable person, amongst 
the acts which adorned his life, 
erected the \N est Kirk of Glasgow, 
and the bridge of Eaglesham.

m. first, in 1719, Robina, daughter and heir- 
ess of John Walkinshaw, of that Ilk, and

He wedded secondly, Elenora, daughter of 
Sir Thomas Nicolson, of Carnock, and widow

by his only child, 

John Walkinshaw-Craufird, of Crau- 
furdland, appointed, in August, 1761, fal- 
coner to the king for Scotland. This gen- 
tleman entered the army at an early age, 
and attained the rank of lieutenant-colonel. 
He shared in the victory of Dettingen, and 
distinguished himself in the hard fought 
field of Fontenoy. Colonel Craufurd was 
the intimate and faithful friend of the ill- 
fated Earl of Kilmarnock, who suffered for 
adhesion to the Stuarts in 1745. He at- 
tended the unhappy nobleman to the scaf- 
fold, and tradition states that he held a 
corner of the cloth which received his head: 
for which act of trying friendship his name, 
it is said, was placed at the bottom of the 
army list. Colonel Craufurd d. at Edin- 
burgh, unmarried, in February, 1793, aged 
seventy-two, settling his estate, by deed 
made on his death-bed , upon Thomas Coutts, 
esq. of London, banker. That instrument 
was, however, disputed by his aunt and next 
heir, 

Elizabeth Craufurd, who instituted an 
action of reduction, and after protracted 
litigation, carried on by herself and her suc- 
cessor, the deed was eventually reduced by 
a decree of the House of Lords in 1806, and 
the ancient estates came back to the rightful 
heirs. Miss Craufurd had m, first, William 
Fairlie, of that Ilk, by whom she had one 
daughter, who died in infancy. She espoused 
secondly, 3rd June, 1744, John Howison, 
esq. of Braehead, in Mid Lothian (see family 
of Howison at foot), and dying in 1802, 
aged ninety-seven, was s. by her only sur- 
viving child, 



Elizabeth Howison-Craufurd, of Brae- 
head, and, by the decree of the House of 
Lords, of Craufurdland. This lady es- 
poused, in 1777, the Rev. James Moodie, 
who assumed the additional surnames of 
Howison and Craufurd, by whom (who d. 
in 1831) she had issue, 

Alexander, b. in 1780, d. in 1796. 

William, her heir. 

Margaret, deceased. 

Isabella-Craufurd. 
Mrs. Howison-Craufurd died 1st April, 1823,
